A loyal reader of the Plain Talk has urged me to reprint Paul Harvey’s famed “So God Made a Farmer” speech this week, thinking it would be especially appropriate because as you read this the Clay County Fair is in full swing here in Vermillion.

The entire nation had the opportunity to hear Harvey read the speech because a portion of it, I believe, was included in a Super Bowl television commercial a few years back.
