Farm Bill Follies

I generally see the Farm Bill is one of those impenetrable deals concocted in the back rooms by square state senators, impervious to any sound or fury directed at it.

As such I tend not to follow its twists and turns, but it's certainly an important bill both for how it impacts the environment and how it impacts the health of the nation.

Anyway, as it's not something I've followed enough to know if Rep. Blumenauer is trying to push it in the right direction, but at a first pass it doesn't sound evil.
