It’s Organic – and they panicked!


The La Vida Locavore website reveals a letter from lobbyists who shuddered at the announcement that US First Lady, Michelle Obama, plans to have an organic garden at The White House.

The leaked letter had been forwarded through Mid America CropLife Association members with the note: “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. ”

Janet Braun, of the Mid America CropLife Association, begins the condescension by addressing the letter to Mrs Barack Obama (not Michelle) and soon proceeds to “Congratulations on recognizing the importance of agriculture in America!”.
