I’m a big fan of the Discovery Channel show, “Dirty Jobs.” Mike Rowe is a sensible “everyman” who not only tells it like it is, but shows it like it is. Last fall, he was the keynote speaker at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis (my FFA-member daughter was delighted at the chance to see him in person, by the way). That appearance prompted the article “The Future of Farming” on Mike Rowe’s website, and it captures well the concern Agriculture folks have over the way the production of food is viewed (and misunderstood) by the American people. I encourage you to take a look at the article.
