    A big fight is underway in many states to increase regulation of genetically modified organisms ("GMO"). One of the biggest battles going on right now is in Washington state were an initiative is on the Nov. 5th ballot to require labeling of GMO products.

    I just got back from Washington State, where I was visiting family. The commercials (mostly anti-labeling) were pretty hilarious. "I am a small farmer and I oppose labeling, because it doesn't apply to meat!" etc, etc.

    Even most of the actors delivering those lines were completely lacking in sincerity. The very people paid to spread the pro-GMO propaganda looked as though they felt like they were doing something morally equivalent to kicking puppies :D
