Hippies + Extreme Right = Raw Milk
on (1) Comment

I was waiting for somebody to crack this joke. OK, apparently she didn't mean it as a joke. Sen. Judy Robson weighed in on legislation to legalize the sale of raw milk in Wisconsin:

Sen. Judy Robson, D-Beloit, spoke against the proposal, saying the bill presented a union between the extreme right and left -- what she dubbed the "teabag" and "granola" lobbies -- at the expense of the safety of Wisconsinites.
"Public health has been beleaguered for a long time. We don't take public health very seriously until we don't have it," Robson said, noting a number of medical and farm groups opposed to the legislation. "Government gets involved when they know there's a significant impact to public health."

What are the advantages of raw milk? Does it taste better? I've always wondered why 2% milk is more expensive than skim. I wonder how unpasteurized milk will fit in that context. I can't wait till the Starbucks crowd gets a hold of this. "Double vanilla latte with a dash of raw to go, please. I'm in a hurry."
