Well you'd be right if you said they are iconic symbols of
State of Maine. So now comes a newly published book by husband-and-wife
writer-and-photogrpaher team Smith-Mayo. With beautiful photography and
crisp engaging prose Maine Icons
is a wonderful book that captures the Maine spirit in a fun
entertaining way. That the new book will be enjoyed both inside and
outside of Maine is reflected by this week's 5

We Don't Need GMO Foods
Two of our
Back-To-Basics review critiquing the biotech propaganda view which
asserts that we can't survive without their transgenic crops. Far from
that self-serving view is the reality that not only do we not need GMO
crops but they should be banned. As to why please read

Organic Community Lawsuit
On March 29, 2011, 60 family
farmers and agricultural organizations representing 270,000 members
filed suit in federal District Court challenging
the GMO patents of Monsanto.
Soon there will be news to report but
meantime here's a thoughtful article
Earth vs Monsanto that
delves into several issues that are
at the heart of the case.
And here's a weblink
to an archived radio interview that I recently did. It was on Pacifica
Foundation station WBAI in New York City. The interview
last night Thur April 28 (6:00PM Evening News, minutes 8:35 to 15:20).
Huber and Discovery of New Electron Microscopic Pathogen in GMO Crops
our Feb 25
Seed Piece we reported on "Explosive
Assertions in Huber Letter to Vilsack."
Ten days before USDA
Secretary Tom Vilsack's annoucement of the de-regulation of Roundup
Ready (GMO) alfalfa, Purdue University Emeritas Professor Dr. Don Huber
gave Vilsack a letter with a sober warning. Here is an excerpt from
the past 40 years, I have been a
scientist in the professional and military agencies that evaluate and
prepare for natural and manmade biological threats, including germ
warfare and disease outbreaks. Based on this experience, I believe that
the threat we are facing from this pathogen is unique and of high risk
status. In layman's terms it should be treated as an emergency."
Now comes a valuable update
from the Institute of Science in Society on Dr. Huber's efforts to shed
light on the situation as well as the emergence of a biotech smear
campaign being waged against him. Read the story here because you won't
find this covered by the traditional media. Jim.
