Best of Incoming From John Phipps

Commentary By John Phipps

We've all been there, guys: "Honey, when I saw you the world stood still!"  Little did we know what that might mean.  Also some interesting discussion about the value of college degrees.

The austerity hawks could get some of their wishes, but will they like the result?  For that matter are we going to choke off a pretty feeble recovery in the process. To discuss this properly you need to master the term "fiscal consolidation".  It doesn't sound painful at all, does it?
The controversial HSUS/OFB compromise leaves many questions unanswered, although it strikes me as an honest appraisal of political reality.  Agriculture may have to start getting used to not getting everything we want from government.
Especially Illinois government. Oy!
