Making my way through the Brattleboro-area farmers' market on a glossy Saturday morning, I found an international feast of offerings: slow-roasted Moroccan olives, farmstead cheeses, pear tarts, almond horns, sweet and hot garlic jelly, Malawian sweet potato stew and Thai rice cakes. Then I spotted a beatific young pregnant woman with flowing hair and a long, loose dress moving through the crowd. It seemed as if the 1960s had returned in this southern Vermont town - but with much better food.

Say Maryland's Eastern Shore, and crab comes to mind. But on a recent trip, 10 traveling cyclists discovered that another four-letter food starting with C is more plentiful in the coastal areas of Maryland and Delaware. Corn, oceans of it, with soybean fields thrown in. "There's too much corn," declared 7-year-old Olivia Howe, arms outstretched toward the fields as we rolled by. "Everywhere I look, there's corn." Granted, Olivia, who lives in Brattleboro, Vt., didn't always have the best view on our six-day bicycle trip.

As with so many issues, what it will take is Congress having enough guts to cut nonessential defense spending and reallocate that money toward other pressing needs. The problem is that defense spending is the ultimate example of corporate welfare. Virtually every congressional district in the country ... gets funding for defense-related programs. And virtually every member of Congress fights to get more of this money. When the talk turns to saving domestic programs and members of Congress start criticizing the president's budget, two questions should be asked: Will you vote to repeal the president's tax cuts, and which defense program in your district would you eliminate to save the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Head Start or other domestic priorities?
