      Although this is getting off-topic, I suggest that all interested
      parties check the site for Eating Alaska, a new documentary by
      filmmaker and photographer Ellen Frankenstein. The film itself is
      about eating locally (both meat and non-meat foods sourced within 100
      miles), which is important for a carfree city on various levels, and
      the site has links to much relevant material.

      The film is not yet available; the site (which I built for her) is
      part of the fundraising effort.
