More on the organic business

I've gotten several emails and pointers to related articles about the whole eating organic vs. local vs. sustainable thing that's grabbed my attention of late. Alas, I don't have time to read them all or write proper posts, but in the interest of sharing, here are three:

Is Organic Food Safer?
The Organic Verses: On organic food and farming
Measuring "Organic-ness?"

And for fun, two inspirations for your weekend cooking: Bravissimo! Sweet Stirrings of Springtime, "Creamy, luscious risotto is easier than you think. With the right rice and a light stock, it's a showstopper." and Recipe: Braised Pork With Red Wine. The second one might a bit wintery, what with daffodils opening and trees blooming. It's almost a real spring weekend here in New York City, and it should be a good one for me. I hope it is for you too.
