Re: “Idaho Judge Denies GBAD's Finance Scheme (Again) For New Convention Facility

Debt is not necessarily a bad thing. This state could expand/improve rapidly if it changed its misguided policy.

loveapples, if you hate the things you describe, why would you live downtown? Makes no sense.

Re: “Study: Organic Food Has No Nutritional Advantage to Non-Organic

My choice to eat mostly organic food is based on many factors, the most important being the fact that organic food is much much better for the environment.

Also, it's important to realize that nutrition science is a very "unscientific" field. We completely lack the ability to truly account for all the variables in a human body, let alone those in a large group of human beings, to properly diagnose the biological effects of a long-term organic diet. Even further, the money and time that would be required to do a real (but limited in the way I mentioned) study would be in the range that no organization would be able to fund it.

In closing, this study changes nothing. For the sake of the planet, the push towards a fully organic system must continue with all hands on deck.
