everyone should read this food-policy article

This is an open letter from Michael Pollan to the President-elect of the USA, and lays out a number of steps that can, and really must, be taken in order to maintain a healthful and safe and adequate food supply for America in the coming years. (These policies have similar benefits for the world overall too, but being an American, it is of primary importance to me that we be able to trust the food we buy here at home.)

Plant a garden, shop a farmer's market, make a cheese sandwich instead of a burger: we can all do a lot of little things to fix the problems.

And send this article to as many people as you can. This is not just a foodie thing anymore.
