A lot of regulatory agencies are actually at least 50% promotional agencies.  The FAA and NRC always leap to mind in these discussions.

There's nothing necessarily wrong with a regulatory agency promoting the industry that it regulates -- but it can't do it in a secretive manner, or to the detriment of (or in place of) its regulatory efforts.  A regulatory agency must always put public interest first.

The public, however, is not unified, not loud, and usually doesn't know where to complain or how to get publicity.  Even when the public actually makes an argument in its own self-interest, which is rare.  Industry lobbies, on the other hand, are unified, loud, targeted, and well-funded.

Pretty sure they do the same with corn, too. Lot of msgboard scoffing at people who dare to say HFCS is bad lately.

Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor apparently has a Bacon of the Month club. According to Michael Symon on the Food Network, who can't stop from laughing with delight the whole time he is describing it.

I don't eat bacon that often, but I am really tempted.

Sounds like the perfect Chanukah gift.

Only if it's made out of brisket.
I need this done ASAP, or whenever you can get around to it.  Tomorrow is fine.

 :hmm:

I just realized I've never actually had brisket.
