Max Armstrong talks about impaired driving problems, a failed farm bill and buffalo gnats.

In Denver, CO, 11 of 19 highway fatalities were due to impairment since January. A boater in Missouri crashed a boat in Lake of the Ozarks, as well, killing 3 of 5 people on board.

The Farm Bill did not pass a house vote on Friday. The committee doesn't intend to change the strategy. The defeat was definitely bipartisan. 

Buffalo gnats are taking a toll on livestock. And June is the worst month.
