Sometimes, I am in love with Kevin Drum of Mother Jones (and not just because he was also a one-time Techer who left because he liked words more than math. Call me, Kevin! We can totally start a club with Harold McGee! It’ll be awesome!). Like when he writes things like this.
In other news, very, very big things are already starting to brew around the 2012 Farm Bill. It’s still early in the process, but if even some of this stuff becomes law, current practices in American industrial agriculture will have to be dramatically reshaped — in a good way.
