I scream, you scream, when you find what's in your icecream...

I am reading a manuscript written by a retired professor from the Dept. of
Ag. and Applied Econ. at Va. Tech. It's a history of the dept. and pretty
interesting. The most interesting piece, though, is his discussion about
the criticism leveled at universities in the 1970's that they were working
too closely with industry at the expense of the family farm. He sites
"Hard Tomatoes, Hard Times" as an example of the problem. This book is
most interesting--if you can find a copy. Like several publications that
criticize USDA and the universities, it was not popular.
Perhaps, we should do a bit more looking back at the criticism leveled at
research and remind our legislators that we've been seeing these changes
occurring for a long time, but no one pays attention to "the voice crying
in the wilderness."
