Yikes, CFSA reported that HR 2749 was likely to pass today. I don’t know why people can’t understand that the same rules that are good for industrial food safety can’t be applied to small farmers and food producers without killing them. Talk about throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Didn’t any of these folks read The Omnivore’s Dilemma? Apparently not.

So I hope that this won’t totally kill the farmer’s market movement. It was a beautiful thing while it lasted. Call and email your senators and ask them to fix this problem before the Senate votes on it.

Anyway, this is supposed to be my journal. I gave up being a food politics writer, right? But it’s a part of life.

I bound three books today and one yesterday. Woo-hoo! I’m going to borrow a camera tomorrow and take photos. I also designed and printed some business cards on my wonderful cheap Epson Stylus CX8400 printer.

Better wrap this up, there’s some loud thunder, and the battery on this laptop is dead as a doornail.
