Since no individual plant has inherited any competitive edge over any other, precious resources like sunlight, water and soil nutrients are shared equitably. There are no alpha corn plants to hog the light or fertilizer. The true socialist utopia turns out to be a field of F-1 hybrid plants.

-“The Omnivore’s Dilemma” by Michael Pollan

  1. My daughter has found a couple of audio books that she thinks that I might like. White Tiger by Aravind Adiga and Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. Did you know that you can download audio books through the library for free and then put them on your ipod or mp3 player? I have been trying but unfortunately there is some glitch with my windows media player…..I was so amazed when I found that. There are some very good titles available too!
