Hey, by now this is kind of old news, but Michelle Obama is starting a vegetable garden at the white house.
I'm not a particularly informed or political person and part of the reason for that is I feel like a lot about politics is just a big show to keep disinterested parties like myself complacent enough to not take any kind of action. And what was scary about the Bush administration (aside of course for EVERYTHING) is that they didn't even bother putting on a show for people like me, who care about food or the environment or social programs or anything good in the world. Is Obama a savior? Is he really that different from what we had in the past? Is it possible for a powerful political leader to be that different?
Well, this is obviously not the forum to answer any of my bullshit questions...but hey, good show, Michelle. Thank you for patronizing me! I feel good about it.
