Livestock Farmers: Halt Ethanol

This was bound to happen:
Livestock farmers and ranchers seeing their feed costs rise because of the worst drought in a quarter-century are demanding that the Environmental Protection Agency waive production requirements for corn-based ethanol.
It is never a good idea rely on food producing acreage to instead fuel your economy. If supply is plentiful, let farmers decide, but don't mandate demand for, essentially, burning food.
