Published in "The Final Word" column of Food Routes Network, Millheim, Pennsylvania. Issue 44. 2 pages., Author expresses concern that farm magazines and newspapers in the U.S. are "as bland and featureless as a sun-scorched pasture: there's nothing there to chew on; no water, no food, no new ideas." Suggests they need to challenge the status quo and publicly discuss and debate new ideas.
