Enthusiasm from the audience

On the advice of fellow speaker Patrick O'Malley, I have begun collecting audience members' reactions on video.

I'm fairly sure that this listener, whom I met when I spoke to the Brookline, Mass., Rotary Club last week used the word "brilliant" in relation to me in the prelude to her question afterward, but I didn't get that on film. Even so, when she came up afterward to say hello (and purchase a couple of books), she offered these comments. (It's only half a minute.)

Food-manufacturer responsibility: "It is not zero."

I do not have permission to post the following, and if the author, Paul McDonald — a lawyer, no less — wants me to take it down, I will. But I'm entirely in agreement with his views, and want to extend their reach by whatever small measure I can provide. This article was published on politico.com (maybe they'll object, too?), and I saw it via Michele Simon, a public-interest advocate I admire.

Opinion: Big Food bears some responsibility

Examiner shows a little love for "Fat Boy Thin Man"

One thing leads to another, and something recently — oh, it was being interviewed for NPR's The Salt blog! — led to an article on "Fat Boy Thin Man" published on examiner.com yesterday by Joanne Eglash, the first "holistic health examiner" I recall meeting.

I missed the free showing last night — and you probably did too — but I still wanted to mention the film “Food Patriots,” about a family’s decision to ratchet up its fresh-and-local food buying, to grow chickens, and to otherwise takes steps toward being part of the food solution.

Ideas behind "It Matters," in a Pittsburgh op-ed

I've written op-eds on other subjects, but today's piece published by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is my first following the line of my forthcoming book, "It Matters." I argue that nature is humankind's pre-eminent guide to survival and that following its lead not only solves our environmental problems, but many personal ones as well.
