White House Farmer?
Seems a family in Illinois took something journalist Michael Pollan said in a NYT magazine article to a whole new level. He called for the appointment of a White House farmer to compliment the White House chef, they built a website and they took nominations.
Voting is now open, and Atlanta’s own Daron Joffe (more widely known as Farmer D) is on the list. You screw around on the interwebs enough, take a three click trip and show our boy the city loves him. It’ll be more meaningful to someone than that video you’re searching for on youtube and who knows? It could happen. What?
Note that Pollan also suggested replacing five acres of the White House’s South Lawn with an organic fruit and vegetable garden, which I doubt has any better chance of happening than my giving birth to a houseplant.
