Please Save Y/our Food! Please!


I try not to post rants and too many entreaties to sign this and that, but please, this is important.  Tom Vilsack is a huge sellout choice for Secretary of Agriculture, and the opposite of what Obama seemed to be suggesting he would do.  This man is evidently a "mouthpiece for Monsanto" (see this commentary: <http://haphazardgourmet.blogspot.com/2008/11/tom-vilsack-emerges-as-frontrunner-for.html>) and other agribusiness enterprises, exactly the opposite direction we need to be headed.

So sign the petition to block his appointment.  Please.

Hi Justine,
Thanks for all the emails. I signed it and forwarded to several people. Is the political machine just too big to implement change? Or is it politics as usual regardless of who's at the helm? I hope neither. We'll see. Keep them coming.

Hi Christina-

Thanks for getting involved! I am not sure, though the cynic in me thinks "politics as usual". As you say, we'll see.
