Tuesday night's Flaming Lips show should be interesting, and not because frontman Wayne Coyne may wear some ridiculous feather-boa-and-pimp-coat ensemble and try to pretend that LSD hasn't made him certifiably insane while he rolls through the crowd in a human-sized hamster ball. This is the first Kansas City show for the band since drummer Kliph Scurlock was fired in March, an event he followed up on a few months later with some pretty dramatic accusations about Coyne.

We live in the breadbasket of America and are surrounded by farms, so it should be easy to get affordable, healthy and locally grown food into everyone's hands, right? For low-income families trying to make government-provided food assistance dollars stretch, it's a struggle to afford fresh produce and meats from the outer perimeter of the grocery store let alone a farmers market.
