The biodynamic people are not loony. They are positive in approach
whereas Avery is almost totally negative. I guess you're willing to
ignore the CES agent who lost his job because of AVery,  while
sticking up for organic, i.e. _us_. Avery and others just like him
exist in great numbers nowadays and do us great damage while takaing
advantage of the loony right wing political climate in the US. Just
listen to Liddy and Limbaugh. Maybe you do already; maybe you need to
do less of it.

Sorry to dissapoint you, Robert, you're not likely to find anyone like
that in this list, convenient for you to rail against.

I doubt any of us are "entrenched ag bigots", more likely back to the
land smallfarmers keeping on keeping on worried about people like your
friend Avery and his employers robbing us of our fair and rightful
market share.

Wake up.
