Food. The crapping up of once great items, now cheap garbage.

I concur with the gist of your post. Although you can go nuts trying to keep up and it is expensive I think paying extra is worth it.

I still get disgusted and pissed that a former female head of a agency was instrumental in getting "pink foam" approved for use in hamburger meat. That she was employed by the Beef Industry after "retiring" from government just adds grist to the mill. Also remember the 60 minutes episode with the inspector retiring from service that sent back lots of beef coming over from Canada due to rotting, adultered, and digusting shipments. His testimony and the fact when his retirement was approved they had not slotted a replacement made for interesting viewing. I wish I could be a vegetarian but I am lucky enough that I use a lot of wild game and when buying ground beef I pay the extra for organic Harris Ranch or Simple Truth.

Bread (especially after living in Germany) is a joke in this country if it is in plastic and it is well worth seeking out a bakery. Although we buy fair quality oat stuff at Costco we have a bakery where no preservatives are used and the folks graduated from some bakery school in San Fran and their stuff is EASILY worth the extra money. When a baguette is good for only croutons or soup the day after and the stuff in the plastic bag looks like the day you bought it two weeks later - Well, we are consuming those preservatives.

In my case I pony up for the organic and I am taking more interest in cruelty free slaughter house practices. It is going to take the consumer dollar at the end of the day to change from the current shelves full of crapola.
