I can't read past the part where she got her MBA—Masters in Beef Advocacy.

Flores and her fellow big beef advocates hope to counter that. "In the future," she says, "we're the ones who are going to tell you about your beef."


In the future? Sure Pollan has reached a wide audience, but the ag industry with its advertising dollars still holds a lot of people in its thrall.

Why am I even bothering? I should have stopped reading when FootFace did.

It seems that the beef industry has to shell out money to hook college kids, because ... why again?

I just saw this article! It's so ridiculous. Part of me thinks that this woman is on a quest against her 2 vegetarian family members.

"Pollan was really impressive up there," she tells me, finishing her beer. "But I can't escape the fact that, ultimately, his message is that we're unsustainable."

Translation: "Stop it!" *fingers in ears* "LALALALALALALALALA!"

Could it be because . . . I don't know . . . you ARE unsustainable?
