I haven’t had much time to write given my workload with the Organic Seed Growers Conference. I’ll give an update from the conference tomorrow, after I get some sleep.

1) Here’s the beet sugar industry response to the lawsuit. As a litigation liaison for one of the plaintiffs I’m going to avoid making any comments. But I welcome yours.
2) I saw this quote in today’s NY Times in regards to the beef recall, from (senator, democrat, Iowa) Tom Harkin, chairman of the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, ”This begs the question: how much longer will we continue to test our luck with weak enforcement of federal food safety regulations?”
