California Prop 2 -- regulation of farm animal living conditions

Nick Kristof has a column today endorsing Proposition 2, which would ban cruel factory farming practices. I'll want to look into it further, but it certainly sounds like a good idea. I am, in general, in favor of getting rid of most of our industrial agricultural practices in favor of those that are more humane, safer for the environment (and for humans, in the long run, since industrial animal farms spin out nasty diseases), and favor the use of labor (of which we have an excess -- see "wages, declining") over physical and natural capital.
