Nice remark Mr. Logical. It's so smart and classy to call people names.

The only bad publicity is no publicity. HaHa! Rock on Beltane!
So I wish you would have been braver and asked, if sugar beets are a "relatively easy to grow and reliable" crop, why the switch to round-up ready sugar beets? Is the seed cost lower? What was the herbicide cost previously compared to the current cost of round-up? Is production higher? What incentive is there for a farmer to use Monsanto products? I heard on NPR, that there was not enough non-Monsanto seed available to plant this season and that is why the go ahead was given. Why is there not enough conventional seed available and doesn't that disturb you just a little and raise you level of curiosity?
Fight the good fight, brother! Many have embraced urban gardening/farming but unfortunately there are still a lot of folks who feel that the subdivision look (lawn, two flowering trees, blah, blah, blah) is the standard to which we must all adhere. They are only too happy to rat you out to code enforcement because they would never dream of telling you to your face they are uncomfortable with your yard looking different. After all, it's really none of their business, right?
I'm not sure an animal developed in Germany in the 1970's qualifies as an alien from outer space.
