Millions of our song birds are slaughtered annually to satisfy the whims and follies of fashion. While quails, prairie chickens, partridges, grouse, pheasants and various other birds, that are friends of the farmers, are almost exterminated in order to satisfy the passion for sport. Were it not for birds no fruit or grain could be raised [emphasis added].
The insects which they [birds] destroy in the early season is worth three or four times more to the producer than the highest market price ever paid for these birds as game.
They used to be in the front by check out--now they hardly have any and they are in the back in the automotive section. When atlases and maps are obsolete, how will anyone ever see the big picture? How will they ever know how many choices there are to get places? Plus they'll all be indoctrinated in taking orders! I'm ordering atlases of every place I might want to ever visit so I'll have multitudinous options.
