Just a picture that flashed into my mind: It's the SANSOR (South African National Seed Organisation) okes meeting the Monsanto men for a meeting to discuss the latest seeds.
I see them in khaki and velskoens, with the Monsanto gentlemen in sharp suits. At least two of the Monsanto men are lawyers. They're at a smart restaurant with buxom waitresses, and Monsanto is picking up the tab.
It's like Monsanto said: Business as usual.
