I’m fresh out of a dark L.A. courtroom. Huge courtroom, murals of judges, reporters scratching notes.

On one side, the people suing—a bunch of sugar companies like C and H—you know, those the little pink sugar packets you see at Denny’s.

The other side, the Corn Refiners Association, the CRA. You may know them by the bad press they’ve been getting about links between their High Fructose Corn Syrup and American obesity.
The CRA want a fresh start.

Forget “High-Fructose Corn Syrup.”

“Corn Sugar”—That’s the name of choice, now.
