Ask yourself if a company, association or agency does not support my views why should I support them ?This is a wonderfully written blog post on NAIS
An article on why you should oppose NAIS by Mary Zanoni P.H.D.

or better yet, do a search on NAIS and make your own decisions.
Howard Garret, the Dirt Doctor, (who taught me most of what I know about organic gardening), is on your side.
Just to let you know, I have retracted that posting from my blog and turned it into a plug and a link to your site and NoNAIS. There's no room for confusion here. Thanks...and keep up the good fight.
Thanks for the link Wren.
The Fool, there was no reason to retrack the post. It was a good, well thought out post. I merely jumped when I shouldn't have. Can we call it stress. The idea is a wonderful one, as in the finished product, just not something I can stand behind at this time because of what it means to my home. Be proud of you opinions and your wonderful insight. you bring us more to ponder than others would like. One reason I enjoy your posts.
I didn't think it was confusing in the least. We need more people like you not think up more benificail ways, and comprimises. People like that are sorely lacking these days.
"...if a company ... does not support my views, why should I support them?"
Hear, hear! I've been saying that (though not so concisely) for a long time.
I love the "Oh, I hate Wal-Mart, too ... but" conversations. If you hate them, don't shop there! If you don't like what they're doing with your money, stop giving it to them. :)
