A response by Bart from Arkansas (I think that was his name - I've deleted
his message) posted to the network questioned the motives of the banker who
had asked me the question that prompted my request.
I didn't question the banker's motives at the time because he is from Iowa
City and is involved in a group I work with called Prairie Talk, which has
developed a resource library on organic farming that is housed at the Solon,
Iowa, public library.
So, a bit of clarification, and thanks again.
