Dry Policy

The Friday file: Since 1940, raisin farmers have been required to give away a percentage of their crop to the Raisin Administrative Committee. The RAC annually decides how many raisins are needed and confiscates the rest. In 2003, farmers forfeited 47% of their crop! In a case now before the Supreme Court, raisin farmers are suing to be paid for their lost produce. As for the RAC, just dry it.
