Little Bo Peep or the Axe Murder?

The Corn Commentary had a great post yesterday following a press conference at the National Press Club. Here's the lead, but it's worth clicking through to the full report and audio.

Is ethanol Little Bo Peep or the Ax Murderer?

That’s the question National Corn Growers CEO Rick Tolman presented to the media during a press conference in Washington DC on Wednesday, pointing to the front page article on ethanol and corn prices in the Washington Post as being the latest example of making ethanol out to be the ax murderer.

“There’s a lot of misinformation, slanted information that is just inaccurate,” Tolman said. “While we do have some role in higher food prices in the corn industry, we are certainly closer to Little Bo Peep than the ax murderer.”
