"I make my living at farmers’ markets and know my core clientele well. It generally doesn’t sport 'Gun Control Is Hitting Your Target' t-shirts, so it struck me when such a one showed up at our booth. In answer to my teasing, the wearer asked a telling question: 'What could be more conservative than eating what my grandparents ate, eating it in season, and knowing my farmer neighbors?' I had to admit he was on to something." (06/01/11)
