Well, the guys at King Corn spoofed it. And it’s funny. Darn funny.
I’m reading all your old posts. I’ve recently found your site through Cheeseslave and Kelly the Kitchen Kop. I have to say this is pretty darn funny. And scary.

No matter what you say about agave nectar one thing is clear: it is one means by whivh to eliminate ubiquitous corn from our diets. Variety is the spice (dare I say, sweetner of life). There are hundreds of options, and temperance in all things has its merits.

To this I replied, using agave would mean the replacement of at least one of thousands of daily, corn sourced food options; that variety is the spice of life; and that temperance in all things (corn consumption included) is the better way to go.
Sugar in any form is BAD for you. Super moderation should be used. Read the Great Cholesterol Myth: by Sinatra, Stephen,Bowden, Jonny. Obviously the kind of sugar we do it is important.
