I hope my fellow high school GED graduates will recognize how absolutely stupid this is. Why didn't government, at all levels, realize you could have minimized two problems by paying the farmers a fair price for their goods and helping feed those in need.


As usual, government actions or more germane, inaction added to our current crisis?
