Look quickly: WSJ map of the world food crisis
While you can still get into this, take a look at the Wall Street Journal’s terrific map of the world food crisis.

Compare grain-producing countries like the U.S., Canada, and Russia (shown in green) to grain-consuming countries like Mexico and South Africa (shown in blue). The moral: the situation is getting too close for comfort.
