EDGEWATER -- So the FDA has now passed “sweeping new safety rules” to keep our food safe and avoid these outbreaks of bacteria born disease which have killed many of this country’s citizens. Now, isn’t that nice?

Should the producers of our food have to be told to keep their facilities and their machinery clean? Should they have to be told to insure irrigation water is clean, that workers wash their hands and animals be kept out of the growing areas? Must they be threatened with inspectors so they will do what is only the moral and right thing to do?

EDGEWATER, Fla. -- With President Trump having ordered military strikes against Syria in response to Assad gassing his own people, I wonder why anyone would actually think we as a people would survive all-out nuclear war should it come to that.
