Action Speaks (Louder than Words)

I got to visit my favorite city today. (Yes, that's Providence where I spent four glorious years while the city was under constant construction under the watchful eye of Mayor Buddy Cianci). Action Speaks is a four-part series celebrating under-celebrated days in history. Today, we're going to talk about the Farmer’s March on Washington in 1979 and reflect on its meaning for farmers and eaters today. Click here to listen to our conversation.

PS Happy Halloween--reminds me of one of my favorite Halloweens here in Providence: I dressed up like the mayor (I wore a suit and a "I heart Cops" button") and a friend dressed as his wife (at the time) Nancy Ann. (Yes, that would be Nancy Ann Cianci).
