Michael Pollan On Vilsack, Agriculture — And Food

Daniel Wolf (Clodhopper) wrote:

As a lifelong American farmer, I listened with keen interest to Renee's interview with Michael Pollan. He talked about his disappointment with Obama's selection of former Iowa Gov. Vilsack as agriculture secretary. He views it as a loss of a golden opportunity to mold the process of producing bountiful, nourishing, and above all affordable food into a form he would be happy with. There was a taste of sour grapes to the interview, perhaps because Mr. Pollan missed his chance to be secretary of food. To appease him, perhaps he could receive a consolation prize. How about an all-expenses-paid trip to Zimbabwe to view first-hand the likely results of his proposed policies. Thursday, December 18, 2008 9:04:56 PM
