.....OK, this does it......The real reason to hate Rumsfeld.....

From the N.Y. Times review of "Sweet and Low," Rich Cohen's dirty laundry account of the Sweet and Low empire:

"Into family history (Cohen) weaves the history of sugar since 8000 B.C., and of slavery, packaging, dieting, Jews in New York, dangerous drugs and artificial sweeteners (with a cameo by Donald Rumsfeld, hired in 1977 by G. D. Searle & Company in part to get aspartame approved by the Food and Drug Administration)."
