Egypt is the largest wheat importer in the world. In some part, this is due to irrigation issues and inhospitable climes. Egypt's dependence on wheat is also partially because for decades it has been cheaper to import wheat, corn, soy and barley from the U.S. than to grow it locally.

Harriet Ann Jacobs

James Howard Kunstler

Our scribblings are usually not lyrics but whirrings, without colour or resonance, like the tone of an engine-wheel.
