Perhaps I'll move to Detroit...

but then I think about the cold, damp winters, and I wonder if that would be such a good idea. Still, this story on Sunday's weekend edition
about urban farming there warmed my heart.

Out of the ashes at the heart of America's notsogreat depression, comes the biggest boom in urban farming.

I do wonder what difference small scale farming in the city has made to the chronically poor and food insecure who live there, and would like to see more of the justice dimensions covered by the media - but still, this is hopeful.

And they have a pretty good ball team. Go Tigers!
