    I'm so glad this made the Rec List. A couple diaries have been posted calling for action on this, but I was sad to see they were pretty much overlooked. Here are the links to them, because they both include more information.

    •  By the way (4.00)
      I wrote one of those diaries. Action Alert; National Uniformity for Food Act received 9 recommendations and my comment still sits at (none/1). I worked hard to get out this message.

      I'm happy to see it posted by someone with some juice around here. Maybe the NATIONAL UNIFORMITY FOR FOOD ACT gets proper scrutiny now.

      I don't mean to sound bitter. There is so much on our plates and so many diary authors covering so many screwings by our representatives that items like this tend to just dive down the Recent Diaries list. However I wouldn't mind if someone went back to my diary from yesterday and voted on my comment so I have a little more to show for the effort than (none/1)

      I'm watching the session on CSPAN and our guys sound good but judging by the number of co-sponsors, the National Uniformity for Food Act sounds like a done deal.

      On the bright side is the fact that the House bill does not yet have a Senate companion. Maybe a little exposure will get our Senators to put aside the food industry campaign donations and acknowledge the people.

    •  None of those diaries are mine, but (none)
      I think you really need to be commended for taking the time to put those links out there.  Too often people write really informative diaries that get ignores, and subsequently, someone else will then write about the subject, make recommended, and not include any links to previous diaries.   On important topics, all the diaries come together to tell the story.  Kudos to you.   The other day, Peeder posted a diary on something that I thought was good but was rapidly sliding into the diary hole.  I wrote a follow up diary on it called "Pimping Peeder's Diary" that basically provided his link and told people to go read it.  I never posted it, but I probably should have.

      Dean speaks for me!
