Larry Wines: We are disgusted because Congress is filled with payola-taking, temper-tantrum-throwing, self-absorbed babies who demand regular infusions of pablum from their fat-cat owners, pablum they then regurgitate down the bscks of the rest of us.

Carole Bartolotto: The problem with concluding that GMOs are safe is that the argument for their safety rests solely on animal studies. These studies are offered as evidence that the debate over GMOs is over. Nothing could be further from the truth.
