When you hear that Congress has taken up the "farm bill," what images come to mind? Farmers in overalls, driving beat-up tractors, trying to scratch out a living from the soil? A lot of politicians are counting on that.

NEW YORK (AP) — Brooke Astor, the civic leader, philanthropist and high-society fixture who gave away nearly $200 million to support New York City's great cultural institutions and a host of humbler projects, died yesterday. She was 105.

"Brooke was truly a remarkable woman," longtime family friend David Rockefeller said. "She was the leading lady of New York in every sense of the word."
