Since the filter went down, I got a radio show. As a result, I listen to more music than ever -- more than 2,200 artists (!) but didn't spend a lot of time with very many (like I used to). Fantasy Error, State Champion's third album, was my favorite but I spent way more time listening to Dick Diver earlier in the year. Highly recommend them both as well as adult mom and Aim/QNC.
[T]here was always something a bit fey about Mr Knievel, even in the 1970s, when long hair and tight crotches made every young man look like a member of a corps de ballet. In the black-clad Hells Angels world of motorbike racing, he sported white leathers inspired by Liberace and sprinkled with glittering stars; a short shoulder-cape, looking vaguely like a pair of wings; and a gold-topped cane. Mr Knievel didn't jump for America or for Jesus. He rode bikes, he said, because life was boring otherwise.
Soaring corn prices are squeezing meat and milk producers, but consumers will not necessarily see higher prices at the grocery checkout, Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns said in an interview.
Because so many factors go into making food, consumers probably will not see a direct impact, he said.
Corn is what feeds the steer that becomes the steak. Corn feeds the chicken and the pig, the turkey and the lamb, the catfish and the tilapia and, increasingly, even the salmon, a carnivore by nature that the fish farmers are reengineering to tolerate corn. The eggs are made of corn. The milk and cheese and yogurt [...] come from Holsteins that spend their working lives indoors tethered to machines eating corn.
Head over to the processed foods and you find ever more intricate manifestations of corn. A chicken nugget, for example, piles corn upon corn: what chicken it contains consists of corn, of course, but so do most of a nugget's other constituents, including the modified corn starch that glues the thing together, the corn flour in the batter that coats it, and the corn oil which gets fried. [...]
To wash down your chicken nuggets with virtually any soft drink [...] is to have corn with your corn [via high-fructose corn syrup]. Grab a beer instead [...] and you'd still be drinking corn, in the form of alcohol fermented from glucose refined from corn.
With corn farmers now getting $4 a bushel for their crops - double the price just two years ago - corn's become the crop of choice for farmers.
As corn output jumps, farmland devoted to other crops will drop. Acreage devoted to cotton, for instance, is expected to show a 14 percent decline from 2006, according to the National Cotton Council. Soybeans, wheat, barley, oats and alfalfa also will be displaced.
