Obamas to Plant White House Vegetable Garden

You know things could be a lot worse, and I ain't mad at this news.

from todays New York Times:
"While the organic garden will provide food for the first family’s meals and formal dinners, its most important role, Mrs. Obama said, will be to educate children about healthful, locally grown fruit and vegetables at time when obesity has become a national concern.

In an interview in her office, Mrs. Obama said, “My hope is that through children, they will begin to educate their families and that will, in turn, begin to educate our communities.”

  1. Can you imagine gardening while men dressed in black, strapped with all sorts of hardware watch over you? Crazy. But I do support what she's doing. Not just the homegrown thing, but what she says she's attempting to teach the youth. Solid.
