Today's "Must Read"

20/10/10 -- US ethanol producers are shaking like an MFI wardrobe in a force nine gale over the prospect that their long-standing 45c/gallon handout from the government, due to expire at the end of the year, might not get renewed.

"I think it would be very irresponsible to take away an incentive overnight," bleats the head of one leading US ethanol producer. I bet he bloody does.

Which is somewhat akin to "Funds not to blame for pushing up grain prices" - Fund manager.

It's not about the money, honest. We're trying to save the planet here for Christ's sake
