This article was posted by Tevin on PH and I thought it was worth reposting here. How the widening urban-rural divide threatens America - LA Times .....The power resume does not include mechanical apprenticeships, work on ships or oil rigs, knowledge of firearms or farm, logging or mining labor — jobs now regulated and overseen by those with little experience of them. Few in Silicon Valley know where in the High Sierra their Hetch Hetchy water comes from or where in the bay their sewage is dumped. Food, too, is an abstraction. I doubt that most of my Stanford colleagues know that a raisin is typically a dried Thomson seedless grape, or whether a peach or plum needs to be cross-pollinated....... This was my response to him: Tevin Great article that shows both sides of the debate. Most of the liberal city dwellers would become instant vegetarians is they had to or even witnessed how their sautéed chicken breast, with fennel on a bed of couscous came to tha plate. I am posting another article on a similar "two sides of the story" on firearms in this section shared by my Friend Tommy Jordon. Tevin if you can get friended by him he has a huge audience, is a newly minted HAM, 2ndA advocate as well as a firearms instructor. His writing reminds me of yours.
