jet lag

somehow, I failed to actually post this yesterday (i.e., tuesday):

Michael Pollan, as usual, nails it:

Mexico's industrial farmers now produce fruits and vegetables for American tables year-round. It's absurd for a country like Mexico � whose people are often hungry � to use its best land to grow produce for a country where food is so abundant that its people are obese � but under free trade, it makes economic sense.
In other news, the USDA is already fucking up its new ineffective BSE testing protocol.
