Guest column: Time to protect the right to farm in Missouri's constitution
Thomas Jefferson had it right two centuries ago when he wrote to his fellow founder, John Jay, that "cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens."

For example, I was at the Store That Sells Everything the other day, and as I turned the corner past the large cooling case stocked with cartons of eggs, something caught my eye. I stopped, backed up with my shopping cart (not always easy to do in this store) and felt my jaw drop...
