Not To Worry - Plenty of Bacon

In spite of what you may have read on the "toobs" lately about a global shortage of bacon, there won't be. Prices will rise due to the increased cost of feed(mostly corn) due the drought in the Midwest but that is all. In fact, if a lot of CAFO operators decide to cut their losses and slaughter early and reduce production we may see a short increase in supply and a temporary decrease in prices. In the long run however, there will be plenty of bacon but it will cost you more.

Speaking of bacon...I just read that it is calculated that children in the U.S. consume 7 TRILLION calories a year in sweetened soft drinks. All those calories gotta go somewhere.
