Phil Rosenthal, the creator of “Everybody Loves Raymond”, was quoted once that while working on another hit television show…making its network millions…its staff got a memo saying, “Please do not put milk on your cereal. The milk is for coffee. The cereal is for a snack. We do not provide breakfast for you. Do not put milk on your cereal.”
While nothing in Washington DC is working properly these days outside of the NFL’s Redskins, it does appear in 2013 we’ll all still be able to afford milk…for any use including cereal.
It looks as though both political parties (and since this has been one of the least productive sessions in American history we can only assume they have spent most of their time actually partying) have tentatively agreed to extend the 2008 farm bill so milk will not double in price to approximately seven dollars per gallon.
My New Year’s Wish for everyone…milk…for your cereal too.
