Farm subsidy database
Thanks to my bud Andee (who I don't usually think of as being into ag issues, but she's dirt poor and bitched off about this), I discovered the Environmental Working Group's Farm Subsidy Database. I'm not prepared to render judgement on the 15 people in Windham who collect farm subsidies (esp. Carletta Bervish's $189.60...how lame is that?) except for the usual observation that these people are recipients of stolen goods. But I was pleased that nobody on the list was named Yoder, Byler, or Miller.
No comment yet on the new ag bill; that's a turd it's going to take me awhile to pass. But I'll say it again: the only problem with American ag policy is that we have one.
