The Great European Milk Protest

Check this story out from the N.Y. Times.

This caught my attention because it seems that even with the subsidies that these farmers  receive, that they are have trouble earning a living.  Obviously for European farmers this is a right and we should all ignore the ways in which these subsidies have destroyed local farmers and markets in the so-called third world.  I bet Jamaican farmers wish they still had a dairy  industry to speak of.  Oh well let the powdered milk flow.
