Max Armstrong talks about Memorial Day weekend. (audio)

We will never forget, Linda and I, the Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery all those years ago. Every year 260,000 graves adorned with American flags. No more more meaningful than those you will participate in.

It's the beginning of the cookout season. It seems like 3/4 of Americans will barbecue over Memorial Day weekend.

This week in Agribusiness hear about the weather. Corn planting reports deceiving in light of all the replanting that needs to take place. 

We have it by reliable sources - two fisherman found 2.5 foot alligator near Bedford, Ind. - quite concerned that something like that could lurk in Chippewa River.
