Say It Ain't So!

Today there is an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that caught my eye titled 'Controversial ethanol being forced on us' by Tex Pitfield.

This article goes through all the common misconceptions, dances around in all the usual gray areas and at times flat out states falsehoods.

The point here is not to try and address all the issues I have with this post but to warn people to be careful about their information sources. I had to read over this posting twice before I realized that it was posted in the opinion section. It took even longer to realize that Tex Pitfield is the president and CEO of Saraguay Petroleum in Atlanta since that information was in smaller print under his picture.

So for anyone just dropping in and reading this article it appears to be written by a reporter, someone who is supposed to be impartial.

The point is to be careful, as I pointed out in an earlier post also, not all information sources are as impartial as they seem to be.
