You can take the boy out of Littlefield, but the cowshit never quite...
well, never mind. ;-)

I'll add one more comment to this debate: I love the produce aisle. My
own strong suspicion is that if we cut agricultural subsidies to zero
tomorrow, it would not affect one iota the range, quality, availability,
or price of mangoes, blueberries, cantelope, grapefruit, apples,
potatoes, corn, or any other item grown in the ground that eventually
makes its way to our groceries.

Like the way Microsoft Office Outlook works? You’ll love Windows Live
