A great post on Stephen Colbert’s recent political activism. I don’t think anyone in an urban area can realize just how hard farm work is, and how unsecure life is for farmers on the margins, much less migrant workers.

This kind of bizarre essay on the Tunbridge World’s Fair touches on it a bit– how romantic life with cows and chickens and horses look on the surface– but it’s not the whole of it. (I’m still working on my response to it, in fact!)
