Big news…

There are two major news stories that are worth mentioning today…

  • The Guardian/AP: Nader Won’t Run As Green Party Candidate — A disappointing move by Nader but not surprising. My guess is that he will run as Independent which I fear may fracture the Green Party. In the long run though I think this might be a good thing for the GP. We need to be a party of ideas not personality if we want to have a future for the long haul.
  • MSNBC: Are we safe from mad cow disease? — Americans worry despite assurances that health risks are low This is yet another reason why we need to be buying all of our food (but especially our meat) from local sources that use organic/sustainable methods. If you’re an Okie the best source is The Oklahoma Food Coop (which btw now has 111 members and is doing several thousand dollars of business each month… and December is only our second month in operation! Woohoo!)
