Secretary Vilsack on his trip to Vermont Saturday said, "lobbying for regional solutions isn’t the answer. We have to look nationally.”

The words sound good and certainly simplify any discussion of dairy policy to a quiet hush. However, the term "national" avoids facing a real public policy. Given the happenings of the past ten years,one might think that a regionally disperse dairy production sector would be in the public's interest.

A recent NYT?CBS poll: on page 24, ask three subtlety different question about military and homosexuality.

The answers to questions 82 through 85 varied greatly. Words matter.

If you are going to ask, "What kind of 'cookie cutter', 'one size fits all' dairy policy do favor, any genuine discussion is terminated.
