Blogging on bureaucracy, organizations, USDA, agriculture programs, American history, the food movement, and other interests. Often contrarian, usually optimistic, sometimes didactic, occasionally funny, rarely wrong, always a nitpicker.

End the USDA: So Say IA Republicans (150 Years Is Too Much?)
The first point in their party platform is:
call for the abolition of the Federal Department of Agriculture,
returning control to the state and local governments.
To be fair, this is only the draft platform, not the final one, and it reflects the Paulites vision of government. The Post blog is more interested in "birther" nonsense.
