Farm bill flawed, but somewhat better

I was pretty indignant the other day when this year's farm bill went through Congress with veto-proof majorities. I was in the rare position of actually agreeing with President Bush that it's a bad bill that continues to help rich corporate entities more than family farms whose survival is threatened. I particularly disliked the continued, though smaller, subsidy for grain ethanol production. From the environmental community, though, I found a rather favorable report on the bill. See what you think, and comment, please.
