Monsanto is such a bad corporation that it is almost funny. You wouldn't think that any group of corporate executives would be able to find the energy to be that consistently evil. Just to dip into the cesspool we've got: 1) the whole Percy Schmeiser debacle and other similar cases; 2) the genetic engineering called 'terminator technology', which prevents farmers from saving and using their own seeds; 3) scary ties to the Bush administration (and Monsanto has long been known for its extremely close ties to its regulators); and, most recently, 4) Monsanto trying to hide the PCB polluting of the Alabama town of Anniston, and being found guilty of 'outrageous' behaviour in an environmental lawsuit.
