    ...was at the top of the front page in my local paper (the NYT-owned Ocala Star-Banner) this morning.

    And yes, it totally misses the point. First of all, the term "organic" is very loosely applied, thanks to corporate capture of the USDA. It doesn't necessarily mean the food was produced by small, local farms.

    And there's the rub - leaving aside the issue of pesticides and antibiotics in our food supply, I'm more interested in food which comes from local suppliers, where I can see their operations and know where my food comes from and where it's been on its way from a farm (or the ocean, in the case of seafood) to my table.

    I vote we run Rick Scott out of Florida on a high-speed rail.
