2008_08_pollan.jpgSlow Food shaman Michael Pollan was supposed to give one of his lectures at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo today, but a big agribusiness (Harris Ranch Beef Co.) threatened to pull donations to the school because the lecture would have been "an unchallenged forum to promote [Pollan's stand against conventional agricultural practices."
