Re: “The Morning Roundup: Richard Burr Has Gone Full Trump

During the American Civil War and through Reconstruction, people like many in today's Republican were called the Radical Republicans. Today's Republicans are not conservative (What exactly are they trying to conserve?), however, you can call the Radical Republicans.

Re: “Mind the Food Gap: Who Does Farm-to-Table Serve?

The author of this article appears to have concerns about food security for those who are the most at risk for unhealthy food. I share his concern. While I applaud those who raise organic fruits, nuts, and vegetables as well as pastured animals for human consumption, the cost for those products are prohibitive when it comes to those who are at, below, or just above the poverty level. This is hope. I suggest those of your readers and those who write for or are involved in Indie/Week go to the YES! magazine website. They have had many success stories about food security over the years. One example is: http://www.yesmagazine.org/commonomics/boston-s-emerging-food-economy

You can also do a search for city farming, urban food crops, or city food coops to name a few. Like I stated, they have been involved in solving food insecurity for many years. Why try to reinvent the wheel?

Another site that might be of interest in On the Commons: http://www.onthecommons.org/

There is no reason that the people central NC can't have their own style of making sure all people have food security, and it is well within the limited financial capacity of many among us.
