Corn and sugar pigging out at the trough of ethanol subsidies

I follow the news feeds on ethanol, and I'm really taken aback at how brazenly corn and sugar interests are lining up to pig out at the ethanol subsidy trough. Here are but two examples of it. Forget the mixed scientific reports on ethanol; if we continue down this road of subsidizing it, if it does get a major foothold as an energy source, we will ultimately pay through the nose for it, both with our consumer and tax dollars.
