I've copied the following email message from my friend in Vermont, please try to overlook the misspelling of Michael Pollan's name:

Dear Friends,

Happy Thanksgiving,

As mindful consumers it is essential that we not only enjoy the abundance of healthy, local, organic food but that we also take action to secure a holistic national food system as well as a sustainable international agricultural agenda.

In honor of this day and the abundance many of us are enjoying, please take a moment to sign this petition: http://www.petitionon...­

This petition is a letter to president elect Obama, urging him to appoint Michael Pollen as the Secretary of Agriculture. The other candidates that are up for election completely undermine the above mentioned objectives and all support big agri-business and biotech industries such as Monsanto. To protect your right to know what you are buying and what you are consuming it is essential that we prevent corporate interests from taking control of our global food systems. To create a holistic and sustainable agricultural future that is not based on economic, social, and ecological exploitation, it is critical that our Secretary of Agriculture be a forward-thinking circumspect, and environmentally minded individual.

For more information on who Micheal Pollen is, listen to a pod cast here: http://www.npr.org/te...­ and here: http://www.wnyc.org/s...­ and for information on sustainable agriculture here: http://www.organiccon...­

This petition is soooooooo important. Please sign and forward to all of your friends and contacts.

Michael Pollan was on Bill Moyer's show last week and he said he's not interested. He sure does come across well, doesn't he? You can catch the show at Moyer's site if you missed it.
