ballots are in: California passes Proposition 2, standards of welfare for confined farm animals to improve

soupkitten | Nov 5, 200810:27 AM     15

okay, this might not be the big headline from yesterday's election, but i followed this, and have some questions: does the passing of proposition 2 in california indicate a small but significant social shift in the state, home to some of the country's largest agribusiness giants? a sign that average voters have become aware of great systematic cruelty and/or potential for the spread of dangerous diseases in industrial agriculture? triumph of pollan-quoting locovore urban intellectuals? is this a real change that will lead to other models in the american industrial food machine? and why is this change coming now? anybody want to discuss?
