I hear and obey

I made the mistake of listening to WPR on the way home.

There is an urban farm in Milwaukee [1] and they had some schmucks out there volunteering for their National Day of Community Service.  What they were doing was mucking stalls and pens.

WPR interviewed one guy who said

I've been waiting for eight years - I waited for this after 2001 for the government to tell me do do something.

This guy had to wait for eight years for the government to tell him to shovel shit.  Dear ... God.

[1] Why this is, I have no idea.  Twenty minutes driving will get you to more non-urban farms than you can shake a stick at.  This is Wisconsin, not New York City: this is where food comes from.
