Forbes non-story on GM wheat approval. Speaking of which, here's the Federal Register notice about those new APHIS rules announced last week. I know you've been waiting anxiously for that link. Here's the press release on the new FDA feed rules.

In other USDA news, Jim Barnett of the Oregonion notices that the (already tainted) Harvard Center for Risk Analysis report has been consistently distorted by government officials:

Veneman first overstated the study's conclusions on Nov. 30, 2001, in an agency announcement of the study's release. Veneman said the study "clearly shows" that existing precautions, including a ban on recycling cow meat into animal feed, "have helped keep BSE (mad cow) from entering the United States."
