  • I, like you I presume, need to eat. Sometimes I, maybe like you, eat too much. And finding food is relatively easy in our country. There are restaurants (fast food, slow food, cheap food, expensive food), grocery stores (old term...supermarkets), specialty stores (like a store that only sells herbs cultivated in an organic farm deep in the woods of Humboldt County), farmers markets (which always block the street you want to take) and more. The reason this country is blessed with an abundance of food is because our agricultural businesses are still surviving, although any farmer will tell you it’s a chancy business with an ever increasing amount of regulatory requirements. A Federal Appeals court just added another layer of regulation which is detailed elsewhere in this newsletter.
