Romney editorial good, Prop. 37 position bad
Your useful editorial inclusion from the Salt Lake Tribune (“Too Many Mitts,” Nov. 2), reminds us all about integrity. However deep our passions may be for our political beliefs, there are larger and essentially more important big tent civic responsibilities we all share. Clearly Mr. Romney has failed, with integrity, to occupy that larger space.
Too bad you seem to choose not to appreciate Proposition 37 for its genuine purpose, and buy the “tort nightmare,” bloody-shirt nonsense.
The public has a right to participate in the regulation of its food supply and not turn over seed patent domination to an elite nexus of processors.

Just as the free market religionists have come to realize and experience, our population is unwilling to live with unregulated financial and chemical markets; they simply need to be reminded corporate interests come after public interests. Not the other way around.
