For one of our projects in the Literacy Mega-Course we had to do a culture calendar. I have been looking at México and working with a group planning a literacy program for an indigenous community there. Considering the cultural elements of México corn is a big one. So I started to poke around the internet and look at what the big issues are for México and corn. I don't know why I have never done this before, but to my shock, one of the big things in English about corn in México is the use of GMO corn. I am just going to post a few links because there is no need to add to the plethora of blogs discussing the issue.
