Speak for yourself. I'm not dead and I have no plans for the future to do so. I'm thinking of bucking the system.

I'm glad FFN came up in discussion here. I intended to take a gander at it some time ago, but forgot. Having read Sinclair Lewis' The Jungle, I'm not sure I want to read this book, but feel a need to.

Remembering how the meat industry lobbied regulators into allowing more bone in our ground beef reminded me why I need to know more about current practices in our food supply system.

FFN could just as easily have been "Wal-Mart Nation" or "Exporting American Jobs to Third World Hellholes." What's happening in food isn't any different than the downgrade of the rest of society.

I avoided fast food chains as much as possible before reading the book (very informative, by the way).
