    I think this is a very big deal, as it represents a structural change. Since 80% of citizenry now live in urban settings, or adjacent to them, this could make a real, qualitative difference. Kudos to the First Lady, and Wal-Mart.

    I'm just concerned about what I perceive as a pernicious sea change in the food choices we have, and the ill affects potential they represent to our health, and our environment. I'd feel much better if there were a robust discussion of the GMO issues, but it seems almost everyone wants to sweep it under the carpet.
