Wrong Conclusion

over at The New York Times, the Freakonomics columnist looks at the locavore issue and, I think, reaches the wrong conclusion.
He writes about how making his own orange sherbet was a failure--it cost too much, it didn't taste good. And he projects that idea onto the entire locavore movement. But as a number of commenters point out, those in favor of eating locally aren't necessarily saying you should get back to the land and grow your own food and make your own clothes and tools, but rather, buy locally grown products. From those who know what they're doing.
