GMO debate: a turning point? Sunday NY Times front page piece subscribing to the view that all genetically modified crops MIGHT NOT BE EVIL!!

Sort of a hell-freezing-over feeling this morning (and not just because of the weather).  The aging, faded arbiters of liberal orthodoxy, The New York Times, seems to be sending out a message to the troops in this morning's front page article, "A Lonely Quest for Facts on Genetically Modified Crops": it's okay NOT to despise GMO!  Well I'll be darned.  Not only that, but the Times piece mentions a editorial in Science Magazine by eight scientists (including two Nobel laureates), "Standing Up for GMOs".  It's like an exorcism has taken place.  Next they'll be telling us that more spending on public schools won't help...
