Would you like some dog food with your pasta?

A quote from the NY Times' latest fear-mongering article about the rising prices of food in America:

“It hasn’t gotten to human food mixed with pet food yet,” he said, “but it is certainly headed in that direction.”

Somehow, I don't see that in the near future. This ranks up there with the slew of stories about Costco's starvation-inducing new policy of limiting customers to buying only 100 pounds of uncooked rice at a time. I wish someone would explain to these journalists the meaning of the term "loss leader."
