Oil Highest Ever — Ho-Hum

April 15, 2008 at 7:19 pm (Food)

Well, oil passed $113 per barrel but I didn’t see any headlines on it. Rice, wheat, corn, soybeans — all the highest ever. Yawn. $200 million in emergency aid to prevent widespread rioting. Not enough food to go around. Yawn.

All we seem to hear about is the Chinese Olympic guards and the “Polygamist Ranch” and more Presidential candidate quips. There is a global financial crisis unfolding! All commodities are going up, up, up, and the number of people who can securely eat is going down, down, down. Inflation is rampant. The middle class is disappearing figuratively, and the poor might begin to disappear literally.

Today needs no article of doom.
