Why Not an USDA Beeramid?

The old USDA Food Pyramid was one size-fits-all, and it had its problems. So what did they decide to do? Why not create a 12-part labyrinthine arrangement with a 70 page booklet to replace it! There's nothing like creating 23 general guidelines and 18 special guidelines for older people to answer everyone's questions and create even more! Go here for the Executive Summary! (This is so sad, I don't know what to really think about it. . .) Supposedly you can look at the pyramid at mypyramid.gov, but it's still under construction.

Thank you, USDA, for proving to us again why you are useless and should be defunded.
