By Mark Muller The alarming rise in obesity and other food-related health concerns have become a regular topic in the media. Public health organizations are asking some very good questions do food and agricultural policies contribute to the proliferation of unhealthy foods in our stores and restaurants? And why are corn and soybeans, which provide a large percentage of U.S. sweeteners and oils, so much cheaper than healthier crops like fruits and vegetables? The answer is simple because food companies and the folks in Washington want it that way.
By Donald Kaul When I saw the headline: Bush Takes Steps to Stem Increase in Energy Prices, my heart skipped a beat. I had just come home from a cross-country driving trip that had taken a second mortgage to finance. Finally, I thought, after years of relentlessly pursuing policies that raised energy prices, the president is seeing the light. Actually, as I learned when I read the story, hes not.
ST. PAUL Stadium construction proposals worth $1.2 billion Minnesota Senate won votes Tuesday, but dont plan any tailgating parties at new stadiums just yet. In a mostly partisan debate, senators approved building a University of Minnesota football stadium on campus, then passed a second bill authorizing new a Twins ballpark and Vikings stadium. Each bill passed 34-32; Democrats mostly favored it, with Republicans against. The two sides didnt agree on how the votes affect the future of stadium legislation. They wanted to kill the Twins and I think they did it, Sen.
