You suppose this guy went through all through school thinking this would be the mark of his success? Think this will be in the first paragraph of his obit?
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer has re-appointed a southern Indiana man to represent producers on the federal Lamb Promotion, Research and Information Board.
[. . .]
The board is financed by mandatory assessments of 30 cents per head paid by first-handlers and one-half cent per pound on the sale of ovine animals of any age, including ewes and rams. The assessments began in 2002.
The board was created to "develop markets for lamb products." That's working out SO well -- you can't imagine the explosion of lamb products at my local supermarket. One more example of too much government (in case the one-time, $700 billion spurt didn't convnice you).
