During his interview with reporter Dan Carney (“Dwayne’s World,” July/August), Archer Daniels Midland Chairman Dwayne Andreas jokingly asked a fellow executive, “What do they do for us in Bulgaria? Do they fix the prices? Or is there some kind of a free market?” At least we thought he was joking. As we reported, ADM is an enormous beneficiary of corporate subsidies, like the Agriculture Department’s sugar program, which pushes cola makers to use corn syrup as a sweetener by inflating sugar prices. In July, a criminal antitrust investigation fingered the agribusiness giant for allegedly price-fixing, among other things, the corn syrup used in cola.

NOW IS NO TIME TO QUIT

It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
