    There is a counter-movement -- thriving here in RI -- of everything from community gardens to small growers and fishermen supplying schools, restaurants, etc. The number of small growers and the acreage being farmed have both jumped dramatically in the past ten years. The city of Providence just (after a well-organized lobbying campaign) approved people having backyard chickens. I see great hope for alternatives.

      We have 14 right now, and the 7 babies are beginning to lay, so it's like a second spring right now--three dozen eggs in the fridge, whoo hoo!  Time to make some brioche.

      Universal Health Care - it's coming, but not soon enough!
