    The farm bill is back
    Politico
    Corn prices continue to fall even as Republicans celebrate their new "welfare queen" for abusing food stamps: a long-haired surfer-rocker from California buying lobster with his $200 monthly benefit.

    Sobered by childhood hunger, educators' approach to breakfast pays off
    North American Precis Syndicate via The Exponent Telegram
