    Premise: The drive toward increased use of ethanol from corn is wreaking havoc with the world food supply. The federal government subsidies of ethanol, mandates of ethanol use, and tariffs on sugar cane-based ethanol from Brazil need to be ended - pronto.

    World food organization called for massive giving for hunger today and one network mentioned someone called the biofuel as a crime against humanity - did not catch who or the source.

    So much for increasing the worlds appreciation for the usa.
