getting political about my food

I don't usually talk about my politics. It's just not what I want this blog to be about. But I am very into food, and I love the way that our country is finally excited about local and organic foods. It's just good for everyone.

And so it made me angry when I just read this Op-Ed in the New York Times about a mid-western farmer who had to pay $8,000+ in fines when he used a field to grow organic watermelons, because the field had been slated for corn. I find it so horrible that big agriculture dictates what we eat and what is available in our markets, and controls what we pay for our food as a result. Don't get me started. Just read the article.
