    I think it depends on what the label is attached to. I’d want my canned foods labeled, of course. But I don’t think I’d want people to be labeled.

    Hilarious! I want my food labeled, too. But I wonder if, indeed, those labels are meant to keep you from questioning the labels themselves… as in the Fat-free fad. hmmm

    I think its true. a label is a sort of shorthand meant to explain a set of things so as to avoid questions, so yes, discussion. a label is not a guess or a suggestion, it is not open to dialog. interesting. perhaps I will share this on a list I am on, (AL)
