Frank Rich asks a reasonable question: what does Joe Wilson, “that South Carolina clown,” call the Republican governor of his own state?
But if Mr. Wilson wants less prevarication in all this talk of health care reform, he should insist that we take a serious look at how the Fed thinks we should be fed. The farm bill is killing us and the land.
I know, I know: disease and obesity are good for the GDP. The last thing we want to do is listen to a few voices crying in the wilderness, who seem to think there’s a relationship between health and eating, and between eating and farming.
