What About Cecil?

I have been queried several times regarding my thoughts on Cecil, the lion that was supposedly cherished by local people and killed by a American bow-hunter in Africa.

Agriculture and Labor

Labor Day in the U.S. marks the official end of summer and a transition to more indoor activities.
