Milk debate touches raw nerve in Capitol

Steven Greenhut  SACRAMENTO — While driving through the Mojave Desert a few years ago, I stopped at a small restaurant and had a meal that included raw oysters. Driving home, I worried about the wisdom of that decision given that desolate desert regions aren’t the best-known places for fresh oysters. Nothing bad ensued, but it reminded
