But are they growing arugula?

The Obamas are planting a vegetable garden at the White House. It'll be the first one since the victory garden there during World War II. Just like then, this one has as much (or more) symbolic importance as it does practical importance. The whole garden-to-table movement is an important facet of the new environmental ethic. They're setting an example. We need our leaders to set more examples like this. Are you listening, Al Gore?
