    But we are on this one issue:  except for ranchers and farmers--which is not the majority of us--we don't understand that our food and drink depends on the health of the land. We assume the land will always provide food and drink, because with a few exceptions in our history (the Dust Bowl) it always has. We can't conceive of that supply of food not being there.

    Therefore, the only thing that matters is that we have enough money to buy the food. A nation of grocers, indeed.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in.
