Fifth Avenue farms

Behold the power of Google Maps:

“The red dots indicate people who live in Manhattan (and so clearly are neither hurting for money nor tilling the soil on the family farm) but receive agricultural subsidies from the federal government. The larger red blobs mark people receiving more than a quarter of a million dollars in farm subsidies annually.” – Yuval Levin

    A great job, Yuval. The outrage of farm subsidies is only excelled by the outrage of the politicians that ignorantly support them!
