Big Ag Writes Michelle Opposing WH Organic Garden

OMG, funny stuff. A chemical ag organization (Mid America CropLife Association) got its panties in a twist over Michelle Obama’s organic garden. So they wrote her a letter. And forwarded it to some friends, who forwarded it to some more friends… until it made its way to me. Full letter at the link, highlights below.
Here’s the message they sent with the forwarded letter to their other chemical ag friends:
Did you hear the news? The White House is planning to have an “organic” garden on the grounds to provide fresh fruits and vegetables for the Obama’s and their guests. While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made Janet Braun, CropLife Ambassador Coordinator and I shudder. As a result, we sent a letter encouraging them to consider using crop protection products and to recognize the importance of agriculture to the entire U.S. economy. [emphasis mine]
LOL! Dear Michelle, Great idea on the garden but we recommend pesticides!
