Cronywatch: How Big Ethanol and the EPA hurt small business

Via Instapundit, an example of how crony capitalism -- in this case, the big ethanol producers and the EPA -- is hammering farmers. It is an unbelievable waste, and a spot-on example of bad policy hurting both individual businesses -- farms being the original small businesses -- and national prosperity. (Yes, I am well aware that farmers themselves benefit from other sorts of subsidies, so there is a goose/gander issue here, but that sad fact cannot convert the stupidity of our ethanol policy in to intelligence.)
