This cover from August 13th is for a very sobering story, one of pain and sorrow and desperation. I knew as soon as I saw footage of Katrina and the people we weren’t rushing to save, that this was a racial issue. Like the OJ trial, Katrina divided our country in surprisingly unexpected and woeful ways. The seed saver story, by contrast, offered a glimmering of hope. I look forward to the day we can appreciate diversity in each other the way we’re starting to appreciate it in our food.
