To get enough to eat (because of the high water content).
The speculation about ethanol production
Has pushed the price of corn so high

Against Fred Thompson for campaign violations
And he isn't yet a declared candidate.

Dogs and cats are overweight.
Children are starving around the world.
Beam me up Scottie!
