Why aren't people more upset?
A good pile of crap: a compost heap (I am still on a tear; bear with me. I will be back to regular old garden blogging soon, maybe. You'll have to wait until the storm clears.)
Again: why aren't people more pissed off about the crappy quality of their food? Why doesn't it upset them that people die from eating fast food, either quickly via e. coli or slowly, via coronary artery disease? And how about some salmonella in your eggs? You know that means the chickens themselves have the bacterium, and they pass it to their eggs as they form them, not as they lay them. And how about ground beef, and wiping down your counter with bleach after you make a patty?
I don't know. I have made my choice, so this is not about ME. I just am too much of a bleeding heart to take a "let them eat cake" approach to this: "let the idiots eat their twinkies," as it were. I still think our food supply, though plentiful, is awful. A D+ on a good day. And people accept it. WHY?
