What can we reason but from what we know? -Alexander Pope

Under the Wire

The best ever

The end of each year brings attempts to name the “best” of the past year, decade or even longer. Best actor, best news story, best jar of jelly, etc, etc. When we finished a year, century and millennium, the “best” lists were grander than before.

I’ve decided to get in on the action myself this year. While there are “best of” awards in the fields of sports, medicine, literature and more, I noticed one glaring omission. There is no best of award for stuff that affects you and me daily. In short no “best invention” in the area of agriculture, that I’m aware of.

You’ve probably figured out by now...
