My message was an effort to find some common ground. I am sorry that you
saw it only as a chance to try to score points.
Since I have just said that I support efforts to develop alternatives,
clearly not all persons like myself are opposed. I am opposed to

misleading than Monsanto!). To do so only hinders the public from making
an informed choice.
