yesterday sucked bananas
i can't remember the main point of this post
BUT i do know the dweeby egohead from world news now is leaving - and that's GOOD news
omg - Wanda Sykes (Evan Almighty) on craig ferguson last night was spectacular!
i think i'm crossing seattle off my list of places to move to - it was once one of the frindliest cites in america - but now it's all snobby - according to a LJ friend - and austin and dallas are off too cuz of weather

rockford man saves babies and 6 other people from drowning in rock river
rockford girl plays piano at raviniafest - the youngest person there ever - emily bear - check her out also at rockford riverfest
oh - the main point - milk and cheese and corn and meat prices all going up! why? because ethenol production (plus suburbabization) is stealing away farm land - as we try to find energy independence
inflation was bad in the 70's - due to oil cartels
think about it though - we are trading off millions of acres of land to produce fuel - when the REAL baseline commodity is FOOD
we are fighting oil producers who mainly have to stick a few wells in various POINTS of land by taking away acres and acres of our own land away from FOOD production - and then importing consequently cheaper IFFY food from china, making china more powerful - why can't we just fucking depend on ourselves like the old days?
