Michael Pollan on the impending Farm Bill
It sounds so boring to us non-rural folk, but the farm bill that comes around every 5 years is one of the most important (and most completely broken) bills that Congress deals with. It's more rightly called the Food Bill, as it affects not just farmers but all consumers in innumerable ways, and Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma, wrote an article about it in The New York Times. I strongly suggest you check it out.
