My Thought on the flooding in the Midwest
It is a terrible time for the poor people in the Midwest with all of the flooding. I can't help but think of Hurricane Katrina and the ridiculousness of that situation again. Here the Government has a chance to redeem itself a bit. With the cost of oil at such high levels and those costs putting pressure on food, it seems like it would be a great idea for our government to mobilize the troops and get the grain that is sitting on the Mississippi on barges off of the river and to market. Just a thought to help advert a massive food and inflation problem for next year.
