trojan horse for mass acceptance of frankenfood?

ACCRA, Ghana (AP) - The U.N. chief warned Sunday that the world must urgently increase food production to ease skyrocketing prices and pledged to set up a task force on a crisis threatening to destabilize developing nations.

The cost of food has increased by around 40 percent since mid-2007 worldwide, and the strain has caused riots and protests in countries like Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Haiti and Egypt.

"We must make no mistake, the problem is big. If we offer the right aid, the solutions will come," Ban said at the opening of a a five-day U.N. conference on trade and development in Ghana's capital, Accra.

sixerzguy here,

Off-topic here, Morty, can you believe they changed the format of Deep Sixer so that now you have to register to comment? I really didn't think that was necessary. Plus, it was an easy link to your site! Hey, if you find another site where people have decided to gather to talk Sixers ball, let me know, alright? I gotta talk my Sixers ball, I've decided to migrate over to, he would post stuff on Deep Sixer sometimes, remember? But I'll go wherever suede, jumpin', et al. are. If you don't wanna give up your email, just put in a false one, I use, I hope it doesn't really exist, I just made it up.

I really hate that you have to register, I made that mistake with another blog, and now I get emails with titles like, "Last Longer" and "$%#$gb3#%$"...

I hope this doesn't jinx him, but I think your boy Obama's gonna win PA, good for him. I think I'll represent my non-preference by not voting, but voting against McCain for sure. McCain isn't so smart, that's freakin', I mean FREAKIN' scary.
