More Cheeseheads

I knew there was an empirical point to be culled from that NYT story about California overtaking Wisconsin as the largest cheese producer in the country. Consider this quote from a Wisconsin producer: "We’re moving on from this whole quantity thing,” said Jeanne Carpenter of the state’s Dairy Business Innovation Center, who said specialty cheeses now accounted for 15 percent of the state’s production, up significantly from five years ago. “Where Wisconsin is going to make its mark now is in the quality of the cheese."

Hmm...when the numbers no longer work in your favor, stop counting?
