Nothing New

(click on image to enlarge)

Ecclesiastes 1:9 (King James Version)

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

If you look in the bottom left corner of the above letter you will see it was written in 1938.

In my county, in 1938 you could buy an acre of farmland for eight hundredweight of milk - not so bad.

The cause of the letter is nothing new. Imbalance of power and failure of leadership bring on hurt.

Of course, solutions are the product of imagination. We need to imagine a better world and move, even if slowly, in that direction.

  1. Mr. Bunting,

    Have you seen the new congressional bill dealing with electronic data reporting for Dairy Products Prices?

    There is a similar version being drafted in the senate.
