Perhaps the geekiest major item on the ballot yesterday was a California proposition that would have required the labeling of genetically modified foods. It was rejected pretty soundly, 53-47%. Here's an LA Times story.
I firmly believe that consumers need more information to make intelligent decisions, so I support GM labeling - even though I realize that it will caused frenzied over-reaction from the uninformed. The way to combat that is to educate people, not to hide GM-ification (is that a word?).
