Facts versus hype

To the editor;

A month ago I attended a one-day seminar about "The Culture of Conservation," sponsored primarily by the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture. I was particularly intrigued by the one session entitled, "Don't let the facts get in the way of the story." Organic is based solely on feelings. The facts are:

These indisputable facts about organic are for the weekly cynical commentator from Delavan, Ill., Alan Guebert. His attacks on modern agriculture, armed with nothing but the buffoonery of the hippie generation, is just plain stupid.

In addition to his personal feelings, there is a desperate need to be accepted by the "hoity toity" elitist snobs from the east and west coasts, masquerading as environmentalists who, in reality, are "the food extremists."

You must know that their ultimate aim is to make us a nation of organic vegans.

Guebert's column is perfect example of not "letting the facts get in the way of the story."
