So what do you all think about the media's presentation on the world shortage of food? Do you think we are on the brink of a world famine (or in it?) How do you see the situation being righted? Do you think America and the UK are going to be drastically affected by this? I just want to see what other people are thinking on this subject. My hubbie and MIL (my only adult conversationalist) don't have much of an opion on it. Everyone else I've spoken to see to be in denial or neutral about the topic. They seem to think they won't be affect by the going ons in Egypt and Africa. People live in tiny little boxes with blinders on.
