Golden Rice #3 - letter to the editor, The Southland Times

The billions of people who eat rice as their staple food like their rice white. 
They won't grow or eat yellow rice. 
"Golden Rice", the poster-child for the G.E. industry, is a failure; it stores badly, grows poorly and isn't wanted anywhere. 
We don't grow rice down here in Southland. 
Pasture grass is our main crop.
The G.E. industry has its eyes on that crop too. 
When they come to try to sell their genetically-engineered product to the Southland public, they'll probably call it, "Golden Grass".
