this is the sort of thing that should make people rant and rave, but i doubt you'll hear much of it at all. i mean i like shrimp dna in my tomatos, and so should you….. and we demonstrate that because market subidies will eventually make them much cheaper than 'organic' tomatos and thus we'll buy them cause they are cheaper. mmmm, mmmmmm gooood.
