123. I heard an Obama official talking about responding to worker slavery in agriculture...
I only caught a few minutes - but did hear all the "official's" comments (something about State Dept in his title). It was on NPR but I can't remember which show (I know this is not much of a cite, but I was in and out of the car all day and I assure you I DID hear it - I think the overall story was about tomatoes)

So...this Admin official is asked about responding to these reports. And you know what he talked about? Creating some sort of "slave footprint" index "like our carbon footprint" so that consumers could know how the "providers" they are buying from "rate."

I nearly wrecked the car. THAT is a response? Unbelievable.
