Killing the sacred cow?

Ever since Joseph interpreted the phaoah's dream, agriculture has been a sacred cow. (I've been waiting forever for the opportunity to post that!)

Considering the sheer enormity of Obama's program to "save" the economy, ending direct paymments to farmers counts as less than a needle in a haystack. Nevertheless, I'm glad to see that ending this particular form of welfare is finally on the table, as the Tulsa World is reporting.

The Oklahoman is carrying the World's report, and I can't begin to tell you how gratifying it is to read the comments and see how many of the commenters get it.

Unfortunately, US Representative Frank Lucas doesn't get it, and his hypocrisy also is noted by several commenters.
