    You mentioned after the interview with Sue Hensley, with the Natl Restaurant Association that the Idaho potato farmers would be upset because if the high calories.

    I live in Bingham county, Idaho, the largest potato growing county in the US. Many of my friends and neighbors are potato farmers, including my son-in-law.

    It is commonly misunderstood that potatoes are high in calories. This is incorrect. It is the butter and sour cream added to the baked potato and the cooking oil that fries are cooked in that contain the calories. Also, potato prices are at a ten year low for spud growers and is well below cost for most growers. I would encourage you and your listeners to buy and eat a baked Idaho potato with a little butter and sour cream, every day. Keep Idaho spud growers in business.

    Thanks, Scott Campbell
