Before going to sleep last night, the Cod read a terrifying NYer piece on Mexico as a "captive state," in that law enforcement, debt collection, etc., in large chunks of the country have fallen under the control of drug cartels. And yet, fresh off his Beyonce/Bayless repast, President Felipe Calderon is eliminating junk food from Mexico's schools. Despite being unable to provide, like, law and order, Calderon appears to be doing a better job of fighting obesity than his compadres north of the border. Alice Waters is all over this issue, right? Is it possible that better PR would help? If Calderon can do what he's doing, even when his enemies have all the good songs, perhaps Alice can fight the forces entrenched against reform with an (organic, sustainable, kale-oriented narcocorrido of her own. (See below for an example.) Can someone write a song like this about the Edible Schoolyard program?
