Huff Post Goes Foodie

The Big Bang that is the Huffington Post (It never stops expanding) has launched a food page. I browsed it yesterday and came away impressed. There are posts about KFC's new demon "chicken-wich," the Double Down, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and an interview with "The Omnivore's Dilemma" author Michael Pollan. An excellent start.

It's not surprising that the Huff Post would add food to its ever expanding subject pages. Food in America is more than just sustenance. What has happened to our diets, to our food supply is one of the most shining examples of all that's gone wrong with our country. Instead of eating what we really like, instead making our own choices, we are drowning in corporate marketing and industrialized food. As in so many things, change will only come to our food system when corporate power is tamed and individual choice and will are restored.

Enough preaching for one day.
