Worth noting

Worth noting: All of the farmers I know are in favor of Prop 37. All of them. Despite what the Monsanto ads say.

Yeah, the Monsanto ads (which are starting to ramp up to fevered pace) are all talking about small famers who oppose Prop 37. Clearly there's selection bias on both fronts.

The operative part of that phrase being "that I know". You know farmers because you understand the connection between the land and your dinner plate. The farmers that are part of that connection are, obviously, people who care about the connection between the land and your ndinner plate.

It's the farmers that you don't know (that no one knows) and all the people who don't know farmers that side with Monsanto.
