I adore cheese.
Pretty much any kind, but even I can figure out
something that heavenly needs to be treated with respect and thus eaten in
What is wrong then with an organization called the US Dairy Management?
According to an article by Michael Moss in today's New York Times,
this organization, a marketing creation of the United States Department of Agriculture,
has been consulting with the likes of Domino's Pizza to develop a new line of pizzas with 40% more cheese and is now providing $12 million to market it.
This same United States Department of Agriculture that is presently hosting the federal anti-obesity campaign.
All this, apparently to find a use for the excess whole milk and extracted milk fats now that the US has finally developed a taste for low-fat and skim milk.
Are you following me around this circle?
How do these people sleep at night?
