I was dumbfounded to hear a news report, allegedly sans editorial
posturing, on the Aussie national TV news the other night refer to
legislation that will require food growers and retailers to list details of
any GM-crop `contamination'. Shit, eh. I'm all for knowing what I eat, but
I wonder why we don't hear more about added `vitamin contamination', `folic
acid contamination', `iodine contamination' (of table salt)... The memetic
war is being won by default.
