Corn…. there is an awful lot one can write about corn. For instance, Corn Flakes. Corn Muffins. Children of the Corn. Corn on the Cob. Corny. Jimmy Cracked Corn, and I don’t care. Rock Group Korn. Candy Corn. Corn Rows. Corn Silk. The Corn Belt. Holy crap, we could do this all night.
But perhaps, Corn’s biggest, and latest controversy, is centered around, of all things, Corn Syrup. There are documentaries about the conspiracy behind Corn Syrup in our society. Websites opposing Corn Syrup. Marches. Rebellions.
And of course, the battle over High Fructose Corn Syrup in foods. It is in a lot of stuff: Jelly, bread, salad dressings, ketchup, crackers, BBQ sauce, soups, cereal, granola bars, and on. It is in Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby….. so really, how bad can it be?
I even checked for it in the wonder food of all wonder foods: Yes, it is in…..

Corn. A miracle.
