I just finished reading the South Hill Enterprise online and saw a LTE from Ida O'Sullivan. It never fails to amaze me how determined these people are to try and persuade people of the evils of ethanol. Thanks to some APM members who were honest enough to print the truth dispelling the odor fibs, noise fibs, bad neighbor fibs and other fibs, Ms. O'Sullivan is now on a subsidy kick. Well, OK, ethanol will receive some subsidies, I admit. But let's not forget BIG OIL gets subsidies as well. So, if the ethanol industry shouldn't get subsidies is it fair for BIG OIL?

If at first you don't succeed, find something else to use when all it comes down to is a desire to control for personal interests? What is so wrong about subsidies? They certainly aren't a new concept since farmers get them, housing projects get them and heck, more things than I care to type get them and have routinely for years. Next she will be telling us we need to move to Pakistan to get a job being outsourced by an American company.
