  1. This is a really interesting topic and I think you are just the kind of person that should be covering it. I agree with Allie you should put Portlandia pictures in your ted talk to keep it fun and interesting. I agree with your thesis 100% and I am curious to see how you go forth in proving it. Keep up the good work!

  2. This looks great! It reminds me of all of the Portlandia clips on organic and farm-fresh food 🙂 I like your current organization of the paper. It makes perfect sense to start with the history, then move into the shift itself and the various aspects of the shift. Your sources look good, too!
