On September 25, I posted Survival means sometimes fixing the problem and saying you are sorry; On September 20, I called on the spinach and lettuce industry to step up and pay victims medical bills and wage losses as a first step to helping these families and in saving their industry.  The Press Conference to be held today at 1:00 PST will be interesting to watch.
