Viva la France

Posted By on Wed, Feb 4, 2009 at 5:06 PM

A rare bit of sympathy for Rep. Mark Martin (R-Twilight Zone), whose bill to allow small batch sales of non-pasteurized cow milk was treated rudely in committee today. John Williams has a full report. The Health Department harrumphed this one down.

It might surprise you to learn that boutique dairies in other states are making tidy bits of money selling raw milk products. French cheeses, made with non-pasteurized milk are in theory forbidden in these parts, but some outlaws of my acquaintance have been known to smuggle it into the U.S. on occasion.

Call me a cheese-eating surrender monkey, but it's possible that Rep. Martin is onto something here, even if the Health Department can't be troubled with it.
