God bless the farmers

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn what the World Bank environmental advisors say — or think, for that matter. I would speculate that, before the 16th century, there were more buffalo in America than there are cattle now. I would even go further to speculate that there were many more wild animal farts then. The land we have cut off from the animals is the issue I would hope people from Western North Carolina are concerned with.

I read about a man once who took pleasure in feeding people a meal consisting of bread and fish. I read of another man who found water and a glorious bounty of fowl after walking his people out of a land of servitude.
