I really didn't mean it bad on the city "slicker" part.

I'm done. I don't want to argue anymore. We are different, and that is great.
no worries. look, I will freely admit that most of my urban brethren are completely clueless as to rural/farming realities.

but I was lucky in that I spent many/most of my weekends as a kid in a rural part of SE Wisconsin (where my dad actually built a roof specially to utilize solar thermal, back in 78 or so).

but the cities are just a microcosm of the larger country - I bet you didn't know that where I grew up in Chicago was the largest celery farming region in the world in the mid-1800s, when the Germans and Scandanavians showed up. But the pollution/heavy metal residues in Chicago's soil and the riverbed from the industrial revolution> today are intense, and still a problem.

I'd like to help other people avoid these problems - it's much easier to avoid polluting than to clean it up once it's invaded your dirt & water supplies.
