"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Give consumers a choice and label genetically modified foods
Bangor Daily News - 4/25/2013.
Editorial - At first we were skeptical about requiring the labeling of genetically modified food in Maine, thinking it a fringe issue. But it turns out a large majority of Maine residents from a number of political affiliations want to know what they’re eating. A bill, LD 718, sponsored by Rep. Lance Harvell, R-Farmington, and co-sponsored by 123 Republicans, Democrats and independents, would require that foods containing genetically modified organisms be labeled as such. It should pass.

Bangor Daily News - 4/25/2013.
By Tom Walsh - Augusta: The State House debate over requiring labeling of food products that have been genetically modified is one of many similar debates now raging throughout the country. It is also a debate that has been underway in Maine for 20 years. Legislative proposals to require labeling of consumables that contain genetically modified animal or plant organisms (GMOs) have been floated, debated and abandoned then and in 1993, 1995, 1997 and 2001.
