Subsidy

This piece didn't really do what I wanted it to do. I'm doing a series of pieces on food politics. This particular piece is about how the government only subsidizes 2 types of crops: corn and soy. They consider all other farming to be "exotic" or "specialty." Meaning, that the government doesn't think that diverse fruits and vegetables are essential enough to maintain their mere existence. Not that they're doing all that great by corn or soy either.
