"Quote" of the Day

SPUD NOTES: In his letter-to-the-editor Ken Boehme of Boise is awarded the "Quote" of the Day award. If Ken happens to get wind of this award (reads it or someone tells him he is a winner) Liberty Spuds will send him a free copy of "The Proper Role of Governenment" by Ezra Taft Benson.
