  1. What does KARA have to say about this City-wide move to help aid the building of new supermarkets to provide fresh produce?

    It seems like the supermarket issue has even taken over the living wage issue (at least with the Bronx delegation to the City Council).

    And what a joke the statement from Morton Williams is in the Times article. We need more food education rather than options?

    You can teach me about food all you want, but unless I have institutions that sell good, fresh food, what can I do with this education?

    The fight against a supermarket at the Armory is just plain old dumb (and such a thinly veiled special interest co-opting the agenda - read Morton Williams donating to Bronx City Council members).

    I can see the moral argument for living wages (even if I disagree with the practicality of it), but the supermarket opposition is just silly and short-sighted.
