Black is White; Cats and Dogs Living Together

It is not very often that I agree with this administration, but when I do, I should go out of my way to acknowledge it, so here we go.

The administration's proposal to cut back on farm subsidies is a great start. It will without a doubt cause some hardship, and I am sure that there will be sob stories about family rice farmers in the South, but for the most part this is a much belated effort to cut back on government subsidization of corporations.

So kudos to the Bush Administration -- of course, it is one thing to propose a cut, another to enact it. So for now I guess I will limit it to a half kudos.
