She Can Walk the Walk

alice%20waters.jpgWhat is Alice Waters, pioneer of the sustainable-local food movement, doing in Houston? Last night, Waters spoke to a sold-out crowd at the Wortham Center, where she declared, "?My dream is to get the next president — no matter who it is — to declare a state of emergency. A state of emergency around childhood obesity and children's health." She is also apparently showing Houston that petite cookbook authors are way tougher than the locals by walking the three or so miles from downtown to Tampico Seafood on Airline Dr. If she didn't take a car, how was she able to listen to the Hot 100 on her way there?
