One of the more important events this week flew somewhat under the radar, we had a visit from President General Musharaf and with him came the governor of the rebellious Waziristan province, the possible home to Bin Laden, and one where a peace pact was recently made. Some, like CT Blog and Bill Roggio think the pactÂ isÂ more capitulation than substance, but I am holding out hope that it will make for good things over time.

In the continuing series “Liberals Lied People Died” this week’s update is about natural foods. Germs kill more people worldwide than any other cause, including old age, but for years we’ve been told that additives, preservatives, and modern agri-business are bad for us. The latest e-coli outbreak demonstrates why natural farming could be bad for you… while investigators are wandering the Salinas valley searching for source of the outbreak,Â I suspect the answer lies right underfoot.
Could it be that they grow the Spinach in fields coated with cow-shit perhaps?
Give me good ol’ agribusiness and chemically pure ammonium nitrate any day thank you! While I am making fun of the natural-food eating left-coast, this does have a somber follow-up: two children and and elderly man have died from this outbreak. The fact that liberals lied and people died is not humorous to the parents of those dead children.
When you hear that preservatives are bad for you, think again. When you hear that modern farming methods are bad, think again and do a bit more reading.

Last week, Natural Selection Foods LLC of San Juan Bautista, Calif., recalled all its spinach and spinach-containing products. Many people reported eating the company’s spinach, sold under multiple brands, before falling sick. And a package of Dole baby spinach, one of those brands, taken from a victim’s refrigerator tested positive for E. coli
President Bush and President General Musharraf met today and discussed many things, including mutual cooperation in the War on Terror. It was significant that NFWP Governor Aurikzai also was there as he was in the delegation to Kabul earlier this month. The group discussed cross-border patrols and incursions, the F-16 deal, peaceful nuclear energy programs, and the import of concluding the Kashmir peace.
