FrontPage has a nice typically lefty-bashing article on the latest wacko protests in Sacramento. The first half of the story shows how nutty these extremist activists are; the second half rips into them for their propaganda against genetically modified foods. Anybody with the interests of people at heart is completely in favor of GM; the examples given in the article, a type of rice that contains vitamin A implanted from a daffodil gene, a sweet potato that is resistant to viral infection, and corn that contains a natural pesticide that is harmless to both humans and "friendly" insects, are exactly the kind of improved-quality food plant that will help the poorest people in the world obtain a better diet and higher quality of life for less money.
