Kristof is back "home" in Yamhill, Oregon--and talking about soul

Read Kristof's recent column here. An excerpt follows:

On a summer visit back to the farm here where I grew up, I think I figured out the central problem with modern industrial agriculture. It’s not just that it produces unhealthy food, mishandles waste and overuses antibiotics in ways that harm us all.

More fundamentally, it has no soul.
Read the rest, but be warned: it's sentimental stuff.
