Something to Read
I just wanted to post a quick link to a diary Farm Bill Girl wrote last night on Daily Kos entitled "Don't Blame the Farmer for your Food Bill." In her usual passionate style, FBG explains why high corn prices and ethanol subsidies are not the true culprits in rising food costs, and does what she does best: placing the blame squarely on corporate agribusiness. And she does it without supporting ethanol as an alternative energy source, which adds a bit of balance to the argument. The comment thread's worth a read too.
