Food Democracy Now!

In the event you haven't yet read the Ethicurean, The New York Times or received an email from Michael Pollan letting you know about the circulation of a petition regarding Obama's appointment of a new Secretary of Agriculture, let me be the first to point you in its direction. The petition is right here.

I don't pretend to know who a good Ag Secretary would be but I do have trust in many of the original signers of the petition who have endorsed six sustainable choice candidates.

It's a crazy time of the year and who the next Agriculture Secretary is going to be is not on the top of most lists. But it will likely effect what you eat, what your neighbors eat and what the next generation eats. Please take a minute and sign the petition.

There's a chance we can make a difference. Really. We can.
