A Moment To Think

Cairo Food Crisis

You know, it’s all well and good that I can blog about food and exercise – trying to figure out how to lose weight and decide what not to eat.

The only reason I can write on this blog is because I’m lucky to be in the United States. Around the world there is a food crisis. You’ve probably heard about the UN meeting in Rome this week to talk about it. Here is a fine interactive piece on the Global Food Crisis from the Guardian.
