Aloha Everyone,

This is an unusual post for the V.A.R.I.O.U.S. list. We are what we think and eat so I've decided to pass this on to tune you in. Please consider how genetically engineered food is creative...or is it? And is it a good thing?

PS: We are planning our KidCast For Peace to possibly be produced from the studios of the local cable public access station here on Maui. We need others who can CU-SeeMe with us on that day? -pr-
