This year Texas may have set the record for the most severe drought conditions ever.

ANGUS TIMELY TOPICS
As we drive north from Saint Joseph, Mo., the cornfields along the river bottom stretch into the distance. Atop the nearby hillsides, cattle push across pastures, seeking shade on this warm June afternoon. Along the Missouri River Valley, it's easy to see the breadth and scope of American agriculture. More than a century ago, pioneers first settled along the river's banks, turned the soil with plows and pushed their livestock into the meadows.

IT'S THE PITTS -- IT'S NOT MY FAULT
Have you noticed how nothing is nobody's fault any more. An accused mass murderer is not guilty because his daddy whipped him when he was a pup. Or his mother took away his teddy bear. If a politician gets caught with his pants down it's not his fault... it's the media's fault for bringing it to the attention of his wife. Currently the art of excuse-making is being raised to new heights by husbands, Wall Street businessmen and politicians.
