David Sirota wrote about how the Arnold Foundation underwrote a PBS special on the pension crisis and underwrote a Brookings Institution report on the same subject. PBS returned $3.5 million to the foundation because of Sirota’s disclosure.
Arnold is also a major supporter of charter schools, Common Core, and other “reforms” favored by corporate reformers.
Some good thoughts on how to balance your foods for an anti-cancer diet…

Interesting perspective…I like the honesty and humility.

News from the Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market:
Finally, we should have a clear, non-arctic evening for our market. Come back and taste the goodness from our faithful vendors: The Local Catch, Blue Skys Farm, PV Farmstand, Foremost Baking Company, Little Falls Cafe, and (we hope) Presto Strange O coffee truck. Our market table will feature products from Virginia & Spanish Peanut Company, Rhody Fresh butter and cheese, Fruit Hill Apiaries Honey and Barden Orchard apples.
New this week: Winter Chevre from Beltane Farm. Market regulars will fondly recall the delightful goat cheeses from Paul Trubey’s Lebanon CT farm, sold at our regular season market. This chevre is described as follows:
“While our goats are on winter break from milking, our cow Betsey Bigelow provides the milk for this creamy, soft cheese with a velvety texture.”
We met Betsey, her new calf Penelope, and lots of goats at the farm when we went to pick up the cheeses. She is a sweet girl, and her cheese is delicious. Samples will be available tomorrow.
And we will have a familiar face behind the table at the Blue Skys Farm booth: Chang Xiong of Pak Express will be subbing for Christina for the early part of the market. Say hello to Chang and get a spring preview.
See you at the market.
