MARSH MUSINGS

CHEYENNE BOTTOMS - I will never forget my first experience with a pheasant in Kansas. I was nervous, my voice sounding like a pre-pubescent teenager as it cracked and cut out during conversation. I was already on edge riding back from my interview for the Educator position at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center with my future boss, Curtis Wolf. Was I doing OK? Did I seem like a good fit? Random thoughts were going through my head when smack! The sound was piercing and abrupt. What in the world did we run into? I reluctantly peered forward to see a large ...

End Oil Protectionism

The politics of the crude exports issue are confused by a lot of irresponsible reporting. Almost every story on the issue asserts that allowing exports would be politically dangerous because it would supposedly raise prices at the pump, but the claim is never credibly sourced. In fact, every single serious study has found precisely the opposite: allowing crude exports would lower prices at the pump.

On Elizabeth Warren, the Bright Shiny Object

Elizabeth Warren continues to bedazzle people precisely because she's not running for president. If she were to actually run for president, her power to bedazzle would diminish in a flash. To quote the sage Bob Dylan, "What looks large from a distance, close up ain't never that big."

Farming January 2015 vs. January 1914 – Part 2

Last week's column briefly discussed some of the reasons for the large changes in agriculture over the last century. Drivers for change included two World Wars, the Great Depression, economic conditions after WWII, and the Federal Government. One reader pointed out that the column almost painted war as a good thing for agriculture. That wasn't the intent. The fact is the driver for change and the development of new techniques and technologies is typically an event or events forcing and accelerating change. Now, how did events change farming over the last century.
