Off topic, but along this line, I get disturbed how agriculture and 
dairies are being driven out of the Phoenix area just to put in housing 
subdivisions with fancy names, and this is happening in a lot of areas 
besides Phoenix. I really don't get it. Agriculture is a necessity 
because without it we would be very hungry. Yet, people move right next 
to crop fields and start complaining about pesticides when they knew 
beforehand the consequences of their move. What's the end result of all 
this - import all our food? That does not seem to be a good alternative.
