Let’s Have a Little Fun, People!
Well, when you work on these heavy food politics issues, day in and day out, sometimes it is fun to have a good laugh at it all. Weston A. Price Foundation president, Sally Fallon Morell just sent me this hilarious video (which she is not in the habit of doing), so you know she got a good laugh out of this!
Let’s wage our war for local, grass based agriculture with grace, humor and intelligence. As I often tell our facebook fans, be nice! Snarky comments will not win people over, but reasoned debate with kindness will.
Today, I got an email from a journalist who penned a scathing piece about raw milk. She is willing to be put on our press list and receive a review copy of The Untold Story of Milk by Ron Schmidt. All because I wrote her a nice letter and looked for the good in her efforts, rather than criticizing her.
As my mom always used to say, we will get more with honey than with vinegar! And, I might add, we will accomplish more with a smile than a frown! If we are having more fun than they are, won’t they eventually want to join us?
