Farmer in Chief

If you haven’t read Michael Pollan’s open letter to John McCain and Barack Obama, published in the New York Times, you ought to take a look.

It’s lengthy but worth reading, particularly if you haven’t read his recent books In Defense of Food: an Eater’s Manifesto (click here to view all my posts about this book) or The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (click here to view all my posts about this book).

And if you have read Michael Pollan’s books or essays on food, you’ll enjoy this recent essay even more.

Whether the next President of the United States has read this essay or will in any way change his policies based on Pollan’s suggestion remains to be seen…
