Submission + - Instapundit Glenn Reynolds with the scoop on Food Deserts

Austrian Anarchy writes: Glenn Reynolds has the story on the current state of food desert affairs: "VIDEO: A Driving Tour of a West Knoxville “Food Desert.”
UPDATE: You know, this kind of verification (or de-verification) of what the government tells us — what the spy satellite guys call “ground truthing” — could be interesting in all sorts of fields." The video he mentions shows the USDA food desert map, with a zoom to a Google map of the same spots, followed by in-car drive-by video of numerous grocers (including Trader Joe's and Target) throughout a "food desert" in a prosperous area of town.

Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome. -- Dr. Johnson
