Got this story about the Great Zucchini (WaPo - don't know how long the link will last) via Betsy Newmark. A very interesting read - well worth the full 5 screens of the story. The meat of the article is in the 4th and 5th pages, but the first three set things up beautifully.
What an interesting guy. Sad, yes, but in a funny and innocent sort of way. Go read!
