Whacky Winter Weather and Wheat

Today, the temperature is supposed to be around 70. Last week low temperatures were in the single digits and the week before record highs in the eighties were reached. Naturally this weather rollercoaster has spurred discussion about the condition of the winter wheat crop and its status. Has the wheat broken dormancy? Was the wheat damaged by the temperature swings? Were wheat stands reduced? To answer these questions, it's helpful to review what winterhardiness is and how it works.

Vaccine Controversy Shows Why We Need Markets, Not Mandates

If I were still a practicing ob-gyn and one of my patients said she was not going to vaccinate her child, I might try to persuade her to change her mind. But, if I were unsuccessful, I would respect her decision. I certainly would not lobby the government to pass a law mandating that children be vaccinated even if the children's parents object. Sadly, the recent panic over the outbreak of measles has led many Americans, including some self-styled libertarians, to call for giving government new powers to force all children to be vaccinated.
