  •  New York City is an exception. (0+ / 0-)

    Though much good farm land on Long Island and surrounding areas, ended up getting paved for suburbs.

    There needs to be a concerted effort to reclaim land for farming in a "green belt" around greater New York.  

    But aside from that, the cultural and commercial and civic value of greater New York are sufficient as to merit an exception from "grow local" policies.  

    There are a few cities like that:  New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, maybe I missed one or two, and of course any city that becomes a spaceport, which would mean the areas around the NASA installations in Florida and Texas.  

    Everywhere else should be under strict edicts to require staple food production within one day's drive at horse & wagon speeds.

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
