Hello everybody, just a little newsflash what happened this morning. The Army Corps of Engineers blew up 2 miles of levy in Missouri flooding at least 130,000 acres of farmland enough to feed 2 million people per year. To save Cairo Illinois a town of 2800 people which 50% live under the poverty level and the town was already 100% evacuated due to the high water levels of the river. The town may or may not have been flooded but the farmland is done for this year and possibly next year or longer.  I guess 2 million people can go hungry. Hope y'all bought some extra food. Don't believe me watch the news check out the Huffington Post.
