Eat Up!

The road to hunger and poverty, if not hell, is, as they say, paved with good intentions. (Although in this case "paved" would be frowned upon. Too modern, too bourgeois.) With respect to food production and consumption, the Left's mantra for some time now has been "organic, local, and slow." But, as Robert Paarlberg demonstrates in the pages of Foreign Policy this is precisely the wrong way to solve world hunger, not to mention eat well yourself.

But then you suspected this anyway, didn't you? You knew all along that this, like most other celebrity causes, was just another case of moral and political exhibitionism. Admit it and start trusting your common sense. Geez!
