Don't miss Adrian Higgins' charming story about DC-area chickens in today's Washington Post. I was Adrian's scout for interviewees, so it's no surprise that it features my friends and neighbors, including Robin Wedewer, with a star turn by her rooster T. Boone Chickens. I recommend the slide show – despite a 10-second ad – where you'll see Robin's stylish hen house.
And today's NY Times has a comprehensive story about lead in urban soils.
