The King Speaks To The Cook About The Edible Schoolyard

Having pulled themselves away from the swank Point
Reyes Station Saloon, in Northern California, Prince
Charles and Camilla are expected, this morning, to
visit Berkeley's Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle
School experimental organic foods garden -- The
Edible Foodyard -- founded by Alice Waters of Berkeley's Chez
Panisse fame.

And I think of all the fatty, unhealthful food that I
ate as a high school student on both American coasts;
and the disgraceful and greedy role of junk-food machines
on public school campuses throughout the world.
