Two multimedia pieces dealing with the complexity of the Farm Bill in the wake of the House vote last week.
First, from today’s New York Times, an article and slideshow dealing with food aid called "Corn That Never Came."
And second, The Farm Bill and the Quality of Food is a show from KCRW’s On the Point.

In the aftermath of the Farm Bill votes in the House we hear a wide ranging discussion of the reforms that could have been.
