Rural Roundup

  • Gristmill is running a series on all aspects of biofuels.
    • In a somewhat ironic move the USDA is poised to approve the “organic” label for farmed fish, but not for wild fish.
      • Fruit and vegetable producers in the U.S. don’t get much in the way of agricultural subsidies, but that could change with the next farm bill.
        • In Idaho, State House Democrats walked out of the chambers this week when Republicans refused to give up a key committee assignment to Democrats. Democrats won six additional seats in the State House in the November election.
          • In Florida there may be no such thing as “rural” within 50 years.

                “In a somewhat ironic move the USDA is poised to approve the “organic” label for farmed fish, but not for wild fish.”

                I’d say that is “ironic” on the level of Kafka, or Orwell, or Lewis Carroll.

                Deliciously ironic.
