Many people think California exists in a world far separate and different from Washington, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi is bringing the two worlds together. The Chronicle reports that the House cafeteria will soon be serving the organic and locally grown food favored by many Californians. Pelosi has apparently determined that Congress and its staff should think about health and the environment instead of just following traditional recipes. Who know where this revolution may lead? In the meantime, here in San Francisco, Mayor Newsom is considering imposing a fine on the makers of sugary soft drinks, one of the contributing causes of childhood obesity. This would be a first in the country. California truly leads the way. Is anyone following?
