So EWG designed a little gadget, ages ago, that allows users to find out who's getting farm subsidies (and how much, and where). We call it the Farm Subsidy Database (creative, I know). The database uses google maps to show where people receiving subsidies live. The funny thing is, there are lots of people who receive subsidies living in all of the most populated cities in the country -- like, for example, Manhattan. Guess I must've missed those Central Park cornfields.
