A few weeks back I spoke with a rep of Jim Hightower. Jim's a nationally syndicated radio and newspaper commentator and he was interested in covering my battle with the National Pork Board.

The column ran yesterday in the Austin Chronicle if you're interested in reading it. It's a nice, succinct take on the whole debacle.

It's the second story, so you'll have to scroll down...but here's a snippet.

Now here's a thrilling story: Goliath bullies David, David slings a stone that stuns Goliath … then Goliath apologizes and gives David some money!

"David" is Jennifer Laycock of Columbus, Ohio. "Goliath" is the National Pork Board, the front group for major pork processors and producers. This outfit is famous for its advertising slogan: "Pork: The Other White Meat."

    I just read this column today, while sitting at my kitchen table and RAN to the computer to find out more about your website. I have since emailed all of my friends to let them know. Austin has a fantastic breastfeeding support system and I applaud your committment to breastfeeding mothers and their children.

    Thank you!
