What, you didn't believe me?

Mexicans fuming as tortilla prices skyrocket
Grain Prices from the Vanderbilt Television News Archive
Corn prices skyrocket with growing demand for ethanol

Those came from the first page of a google search for "grain prices skyrocket".

My favorite part of the last article is when the writer says that soya plantings will be off 11% this year as farmers look to capitalize on corn prices. That's great, since soya is one of the few key crops in this whole biofuel scam.

Last night there was an article on the local news about rising egg prices, too, but I can't find mention of it on their website.

Anyway, I'm feeding Alastair as much corn as I can, since it might not be available to him as an adult.
