Some might find this .... interesting :) One of my takeaways is that one may have to be 'crazy' to enable any 'humanity' in this toxic culture. I think it was Krishnamurti who said that it is not a sign of mental health to be well adjusted to a sick society.

I remember hearing this story a few months back on This American Life, and it's nice to read the article the podcast was based on.

I think it's a beautiful story and a reminder of how much meaningful activity is going on beneath what looks life a fluffy, meaningless trend (artisanal toast). Like how some people see weeds in a lawn, while others see clover and dandelion helping the soil in which the lawn grows.

Thanks, Mtn..now I have to find the This American Life podcast for more depth on this. And yes, I think there is lot more going on 'underneath' than 'lawn folks' realize ... what they realize right now, anyway ;)
