  •  That surprised me, too. Food, agriculture, (5+ / 0-)

    agricultural workers, etc. have long been a part of the left.I was going to ask if some troll'd been giving you grief (and there are several regular food-related diaries -- What's For Dinner on the weekends, a couple other frequent food diarists around).

    But there's a mainstream disconnect between "politics" (that boring/aggravating stuff on tv) and "real life", and another between consumers & the source (& production) of the things consumed... maybe that's what you came up against.

    (and you know, Jill's success posting here led to La Vida Locavore & her book. And hey, maybe her whole new life -- a Bloggers Fairytale Come True!)

    •  Maybe I was just being a little sensitive (2+ / 0-)

      but like I said to northernlights it may just be my understanding of traditional Progressive politics.  Maybe I was just picking up on the disconnect from politics in general.  Thanks for reading TiaRachel.
