Should one company (Monsanto) control our food?

Those should get you some good results. I...

We've discussed "fracking"  before at Green Kids Rock--a controversial natural gas drilling operation. Now you won't want to miss GasLand.  I know, documentaries can sometimes be a snooze, but Josh Fox isn't an Oscar Nominee or a Sundance Film award winner for nothing!  In May of 2008, Fox was offered $100,000 to lease his land to a natural gas company. $100,000?
