Secretary of Food?

There’s a growing call for Obama to appoint a Secretary of Food instead of a Secretary of Agriculture– and, most importantly, to make this someone who is not in the pocket of the Agriculture Industry. The thought is that we should instead have a genuine reformer who cares about sustainable farming, public health, pollution, animal welfare, and small farms. This strikes me as a great idea, and apparently the petition on the topic is quickly amassing enough signatures that Obama is taking it seriously. So go read more, and if you like go sign the petition! (Thanks lydia!)
