Mmmm, communist corn

A plaque adorning a wall of the rest stop in Iowa I visited last week. The rest stop is dedicated to Henry Wallace, 1948 presidential candidate (that was a wild one), Roosevelt's last veep, and Adair County, Iowa, native son:

Wallace could sound rather Mao-like.

So can Billy Bob. For the trip home he's promulgated the glorious "Three F's" campaign: Feed me, feed me, feed me.

Update: Little known fact: America's second highest civilian honor after the Medal of Freedom is the Rest Stop of Gratitude.
