Sunday linkdump #3.

* The local food movement gets a big boost with news of a vegetable garden on the White House lawn. More at MeFi.

* Visualizing the organic food industry in the U.S.

* The Washington Post finally gets around to kind of correcting George Will’s dishonest columns on climate change. Sure, it’s been a month, but it’s not like the paper comes out every day.

* You may remember from Jon Stewart’s well-placed mockery when Barack Obama gave Gordon Brown a gift of twenty-five DVDs during his visit that paled in comparison to Brown’s gift of a pen-holder made from the timbers of the HMS Resolute. Well, it’s a little worse than you think.

Alas, when the PM settled down to begin watching them the other night, he found there was a problem.

The films only worked in DVD players made in North America and the words “wrong region” came up on his screen.

I’ve told you before, information wants to be free…

Even the list of DVDs itself is fairly unimpressive. Star Wars? The Godfather? Really? I’ve got to be honest, I think Brown’s probably seen some of these.
