What now?

Well, it's done. According to the blogs I've been reading, like Sam Fromartz' Chewswise (see link to right of this post), Vilsack isn't the worst choice for Sec'y of Ag, but he's far from being the best, either.  The Center for Rural Affairs is circulating an open letter to the new Secretary; it's a rather long letter and it doesn't include everything I'd like to see, like tax incentives for sustainable farming and eliminating subsidies to farmers that grow nothing but monocrops like genetically modified corn and soybeans, but it's a start. Please check it out and add your name and pass it on to all those you know. Maybe Vilsack will be open to suggestions. We can hope.
