1) The image atop this post comes from Good magazine and is meant to be a guide to eating seasonally. I read it more as an explanation of why so much of the locavore movement is based in California.

2) A comparison of the funding mechanisms in the House and Senate health-care bills.

3) The inanity of airport security theater.

4) Is Lauren Conrad the essential American of the 00's?

5) Was 'Drops of Jupiter' the most important song of the 00's?

I've long thought that it's easy for Alice Waters to advocate for eating locally, because she's from Berkeley. Here in Michigan, the local vegetables and fruits available from, oh, November through May, would be apples, potatoes, and winter squash. In season, I love eating Michigan produce, but in late fall, winter, and spring, I need a little variety.

And what the heck kind of tomatoes ripen in Connecticut in spring? I grew up in New Jersey, and fresh tomatoes were a July-September treat.

I grew up in CT and you don't even plant tomatoes until well into May.
It has also been pointed out by somebody that if you really want to eat locally and don't live in coastal California, it helps if you're willing to compromise on organic.
