oxford american, “this land is our land”

“For those of us who live to eat, there are hopeful times. Mindful eating is in vogue. As I write these words, Michael Pollan has two books on the New York Times bestseller list, and our first lady is focusing her attention on linkages between this nation’s food supply chain and childhood obesity. Perhaps a change is coming in what and how we eat. Soon, someone is going to realize that those white kids in their twenties, the ones who swear allegiance to the “good, clean, and fair” dictum that defines the Slow Food Movement, the ones who know how to decipher the recycling numbers on the bottoms of plastic bottles and actually buy carbon offsets when they fly–have a few things in common with the grizzled vets who fulminate on behalf of the Federation of Southern cooperatives. Both groups are determined. And righteous.”
