Re: community_garden digest, Vol 1 #494 - 7 msgs


I would like to respond to the political entries.  What do Midland, Michigan and
Midland, Texas have in common?

They are both owned by Dow Chemical Company.  George Bush's wife grew up in Midland,
Texas.  I know she is not running for office, but if anyone out there believes that
behind every man, good or bad, there lurks a good woman,  then one should consider
one's vote very carefully. We are talking about the folks who brought us Saran
Wrap.    And the air always smells of  iodine, at least in Midland, Michigan.
