I’ve just been reading Worms Produce Another Kind of Gold for Farmers – NYTimes.com.
What a great business – if I wasn’t a cartoonist, I’d seriously consider being a worm farmer. You reduce waste and improve soil. What’s not to love about worms?

I wish a lot more Governments had the guts to implement carbon taxes.
