« As They Say in Texas: Oil is King... | Main | Fat is Huge: Lucien Freud's Record Setter »

Coal, corn, oil. Big corporations. Sometimes I wonder if capitalism hasn't done us more harm than good.

I've been concerned about the state of farms for fifty years as they have been gradually becoming either big business operations or non-productive (receiving govt. subsidies to produce no product.)

I could elaborate on many more farming related issues, but you've done a pretty good job of delving into most of them in your series here. Now, the question is, how do these issues get discussed, change promoted, problems resolved?

I saw the longer version of "King Corn" on PBS just the other day. Really scary. Basically all roads lead to high fructose corn syrup. No wonder obesity is rising.
You can see the full version movie via Netflix. It's well worth it.
