"If we had just one month of the cost of this war in Iraq, we could fund a worldwide school lunch program, and the world might be more peaceful.." ~George McGovern

Remember the community garden at East Nashville Co-Op? Well, I ran by there the other day and although they were closed at the time, I couldn't resist a peek through the fence. Two of the three back rows are filled with tomato plants and everything seems to be coming along rather well. From a gardening standpoint, I'm pretty amazed since the dirt they started with was a little bit of an urban gardener's nightmare (glass, gravel, rusted scrap metal, etc.)

    The McGovern quote is like saying if we had not entered WWII, then there would have been more money to feed people. Okay, well there would have been fewer people to feed, also (they'd be dead). But what kind of solution is that? Hunger is an issue only as long as you are alive. Let's not confuse the issue of hunger with the issue of war.
