Organic, shmorgamic.

I find the recent craze about organic food to be irritating. Everything and anything is organic as long as it satisfies some bureaucrats idea of what organic should be.

When my grandma thought organic she thought food grown by a farmer who cared about the product he produced. In particular she did not think that processed food was organic. Probably she would have been appalled to learn what her grandson eats.

The absurdity of the definition of organic was brought home today by my wife. She bought organic string cheese from Trader Joe’s. What part of a processed cheese in the form of strings is organic?

So pardon my French, but organic string cheese is only organic if you’re a bureaucrat concerned with chemical compounds and not the basic process of food production.

A pox on them and their products.
