Each year, food system solutionaries attempt to eat within 200 miles of New Orleans as part of the Eat Local Challenge. This is a marvelously interactive addition to our local food revolution.

Actor Kevin Costner has testified in the trial of a lawsuit in New Orleans that he was heartbroken watching the Gulf oil spill disaster in 2010 and headed to the area with oil cleanup devices to aid the recovery.
Costner testified yesterday in connection with a multimillion-dollar business dispute over the devices involving fellow actor Stephen Baldwin.
