Hello Friends and Fellow Observers of the World!!!

Posting has certainly slowed down during June with vacation and other family commitments.   Here are links to a couple of news stories on which I recently commented.

Locally Grown..Globally Shipped….

Reuters did a piece on the soon to be re-opened Panama Canal. Interestingly, that has implications for farmers (and others) right here in West Tennessee.

Stability Never Felt So Shaky…..

Recent BLS news on the economy and labor conditions claims that things are stabilizing.  I raise some different points.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
