Somebody did resurrect the broadcaster Paul Harvey to do a commercial about farmers, whom he said God makes. It was so moving that some of us were tempted to go out and buy some farmers, only to discover that corporations have lately driven up their price.
It wasn’t just the darned commercials. The worst must be kept to last, so shocking is this revelation.
