In this part of the world, where we grow much o' the maize, some interesting billboards are springing up. Pictured on one side is a good ol' Midwestern corn farmer in his field, looking much like many people I know. On the other, a Saudi shiek. The text reads, "Who would you rather buy fuel from?" See? Three favorite American things right there - corn, driving big-ass SUVs and thinly-veiled racism!


Have you been reading The Omnivore's Dilemma? The author puts out the notion that humans eat so much corn (it's in *everything* from vegetable wax to salt) that we are like corn chips with legs...good book. The corn thing creeps me out...
