Watch it there, Graham. You're crossing the line between politics and  
pretty pictures -- not something this group tolerates well!

I happen to agree with you on this one, though. With corn and soybeans  
going into fuel tanks of SUVs, there isn't enough food left to run  
through an animal, at 10% efficiency. (It takes 10 calories of plant  
matter to make 1 calorie of meat, and grain stocks are near ten-year  

There, I managed to insult farmers, SUV owners, and meat eaters, in  
just one paragraph!
