JK Rowling pushes self-publishing and eBooks WAY ahead with Pottermore. (I'd love 0.01% of her sales!)
The US, Brazil and China block proposals to reduce subsidies to biofuels or lower export restrictions on food. Ag Secretary Vilsack (Voldemort?) says ridiculous things like ethanol program creates jobs and US program (diverting 40% of corn into biofuels) has minimal impact on world markets. I wish he'd just admit to taking bribes from farmers and ag processors to screw poor people and the environment.
