Science had yet to be broken down in to the dozens of specialized fields that we know today, zoology, botany, chemistry, physics, and so many more. Ancient scientists were concerned about how everything on earth fitted together – the first naturalists studied everything from art to human anatomy to astronomy. What does this have to do with us today?

On Elizabeth Warren, the Bright Shiny Object

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.
