Doc’s colloquy: Will the FDA listen?

For Hastings and his tree fruit industry supporters, the colloquy was eerily similar to the “to be or not to be” verse by Shakespeare for Hamlet. Can apple growers exist after the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune from the FDA?

A little dramatic, true. But Hastings has made his point. Time will tell if the FDA is listening .

If the FDA will listen? How about, "time will tell if Hastings will listen." The proposed rules already do into account the differences between lettuce and apples. There's a great deal of language in the rules that differentiates between individual types of agricultural products. They're not subject to the same requirements. Doesn't Hastings employ someone to check up on these things before he grandstands in public?
