bumping to bring in more voices

Mmmm, me too. Have read the article several times to work out just what bothered me about it so much. So......conclusion is that Viv Groskop goes off to write a piece on the "rebellion" ie that piece in Atlantic Monthly and finds (judging by the sources quoted) that it's all a bit more complicated......but that won't fill the brief. So cobble it together, stick in a few platitudes and misapprehensions (cf the reference to Politics of Breastfeeding which confuses ingredients for the likes of immunobollocks with contaminants) and put on a strapline that doesn't really reflect the article.

And it's in the Guardian...I mean in the Times and DM I'd regard it as an improvement on the normal drivel. What's a bleeding heart liberal to do?
