Bud Savoie BS: Food, Farmers, making a living (45) RE: BS: Food, Farmers, making a living 16 Sep 00

As a part-time farmer, I agree with the sentiments expressed here. I saw a bumper sticker some years ago that read, "Don't criticize farmers with your mouth full."

I will never understand why people don't consider farmers as deserving of support. It's a hard, thankless, chancy job. Crime pays better. Since Adam and Eve got kicked out the the garden people have been trying to work out a way to make a decent living from farming, but not many have succeeded.

A full-time lawyer, I love my practice. But I must admit that civilization can exist and has existed for most of the world's history without lawyers. And without doctors, accountants, mechanics, policemen, and politicians. It cannot exist without farmers.
