I’m going to try something a little different with the links. Instead of just linking to everything I find I’m going to try and be more selective with the links. I’ll give a brief summary and some commentary on each link.
Don’t ask how the URLs get made. Just enjoy the hyperlink tastiness!
Rooted in discomfort: In the review of her time at the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) an Ethicurean contributor reflects on the connection that Vandana Shiva makes between food justice and the health of democracy.

Former Slave Prepares to Harvest First Cash Crop– The International Justice Mission reports on a former slave who is now changing the lives of his community with money the government gave him after his release. A glimpse of the kingdom coming.
FDA Approves Salmonella (WARNING: Satire Ahead!) I don’t want to spoil the genius of The Onion with a summary. I had to include such truth-telling humor.
Soul Pancake– Rain Wilson (aka Dwight Schrute) has launched a site which is described as “quite simply, the only place on the Web to debate, wrestle with, and explore creativity AND spirituality.

Join us!” Sounds like a pretty sweet new place for conversation…AND it has food in the name so it was a good excuse to include it.
