'The Interview' wasn't such a good idea

Mitt Romney, among others, suggested that Sony ought to release "The Interview," an R-rated comedy about an assassination attempt on North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, online for free. The outrage over the hack of Sony's private information and the intimidation campaign that got the release of "The Interview" scuttled for a time led to quite a lot of heated rhetoric, with Newt Gingrich calling the whole incident an "act of war."

Farming January 2015 vs. January 1914 – Part 2

Last week's column briefly discussed some of the reasons for the large changes in agriculture over the last century. Drivers for change included two World Wars, the Great Depression, economic conditions after WWII, and the Federal Government.
