Map of Agriculture Subsidy Recipients--in Manhattan

From the Secretary of Agriculture, via National Review Online

 NYC Farm Subsidy Map

Democrats want to keep the income threshold for subsidies at $1,000,000--the Bush adminstration wants to lower it to $200,000. 

What reason could there possibly be for allowing individuals who make more than $200,000 per year to collect agricultural subsidies from the feds?

UPDATE: Well, I don't know what happened to my map.  But here's another one locals might find interesting... ag subsidies in our own little slice of the world.  For the rest of you, you can check out the mapping tool at this link to find out who's getting ag subsidies in your own neck of the woods.

I wonder if the big agro industry types in Ohio will have anything to say about this crap. Probabaly not because one doesn't bite the hand that feeds.
