my latest for @LATimes: Holy @TedNugent, we’re all foodies now! http://ow.ly/9rkET

4 Mar

I had a quick op-ed go up over at the LATimes this morning about the unspoken crossover between conservatives like Ted Nugent and sustainable food advocates like Michael Pollan. My favorite quip in the piece:

It would be easy to dismiss this overlap as little more than a missed opportunity for a reality show: A boar-hunting battle between Nugent and Pollan, or a cook-off between Alice Waters and Shemane. There is plenty on which ardent pro-gun supporters and the marquee names advocating for local and sustainable food do not agree. And yet, maybe that’s precisely the point.

Please go read the whole piece and comment!
