Sign of Status--Locavore on Front Page of Times

I'm showing my age but for me the sign you've made it is when you're on the front page of the NYTimes, which is the case for locally grown food today. (Not personally grown food--those pillars of society who have to work 24/7 can now hire people to tend their backyard garden.)

The emphasis in the article is on the better taste of home-grown stuff, which is true enough, but there's a strong smell of fad hanging in the air around this particular branch of the local food moment.
