Organic- and “Natural-” foods activists are a devoted and committed lot, but they don’t always approach the subject rationally. Jim Suber, a Topeka (KS) agriculture columnist — and a farmer himself — learned this recently. To his credit, though, Suber was as cool as a non-organic cucumber in his latest Topeka Capital Journal column: “Writing about the virtues of fertilizer…is not my idea of being negative about organic foods. It is my idea of being a positive voice for a globally sufficient supply of food, both in quantity and quality.” (There is currently no link available to this story.)
