He was running as fast as he could toward the cabin with the bear so close he could feel the heat of the bear’s breath. As he got to the cabin steps with the bear just inches behind him, he tripped and the bear, running so fast and so close, rolled right over the hunter and through the door of the cabin. The hunter got up, closed and locked the door to the cabin, and then yelled to his hunting buddy, 'You skin this one…. I’ll get the next one!'"
  • Link to blogCap-and-trade bill: What’s in it for me?: by Meggie Foster Tyler. "While President Obama is expected to focus on challenges in Afghanistan and a hefty new health care bill this week, many in the farm community are growingly concerned about the future of cap-and-trade legislation, and its implications for farmers. According to University of Illinois agricultural economist and environmental policy guru Madhu Khanna, there are both positive and negative consequences for American farmers in a climate bill that would define the nation’s first-ever mandatory limit on heat-trapping gases, in an effort to slow-down global warming effects".
