I listened to an NPR radio interview regarding Egypt and Tunesias riots over the past week.

The person being interviewed was one of the protestor coordinators in Egypt.

He said that the main reason for the protests had not only do do with tyranny, but due to the upward spiral of the cost of food and lack of availablity as well as unemployment.

He said the protestors were of all ages and soical classes. Families were bringing their children out into the streets to protest with them as the situation is so urgent..

In Egypt:

In Tunesia a few people set themselves on fire as a protest regarding the cost of food.

Valid point.
Mexico's farmers got hurt with a minimum of 30% damage. As reported.

Never mind they cancelled an agreement to supply Texas with some electricity to keep Texans warm at the last minute.

Let's hope for a bumper year of crops for U.S. this year. Keep an eye on the farm yields this year. Prices are going up.. period. BAD year for U.S.? Not good for HIGHER prices coming.
Buy some bags of white rice.. Big Bags. Not brown for long term storage.
