I was talking to a friend this evening about the Monsanto Protection Act. He thought the lobby-rich corporation’s refusal to talk to the mass media proved their guilt. I said those at Monsanto were scientists. They had to explain relatively harmless actions to a hysteric public fearing they would be producing genomes to turn the public into three-eyed, fiery, feathered monsters. Monsanto, said I, probably had to hire some psychologists to help them communicate.
