    I got word from a fert rep that in our governments infinite wisdom in trying to even out the trade deficit, they've shipped a butt load of potash to China. Everyone knows the law of supply and demand by now....result My MOP has gone up $3/ bag in just over a week. Gotta Luv It!

    COMMIE CHINA??? Jim must be rolling in his grave (again). Is nothing sacred?

    Most of you are too young to realize this, but the real Lesco died in 2002.

    One of these days I should write the unadulterated history of the former Lakeshore. A snappy title might be "How to Create the Greatest LCO Supplier, Then Reduce it to a Memory in Just 40 Years".
