Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Dupont’s herbicide goes rogue
Other Words - 9/12/2011.
By Jim Hightower – In the corporate world's tortured language, workers are no longer fired. They just experience an "employment adjustment." But the most twisted euphemism I've heard in a long time comes from DuPont: "We are investigating the reports of these unfavorable tree symptoms," the pesticide maker recently stated.

Scarborough man takes garden revolution from White House to world
Bangor Daily News - 9/12/2011.
By Seth Koenig – Scarborough: Roger Doiron garnered widespread media attention in 2008 and 2009, when he spearheaded a successful effort to convince the Obama family to plant a garden on the White House lawn.
