Commenter Of The day: J. Sterling Morton Edition

On the list of famous Nebraskans, high up there is Julius Sterling Morton. Though eventually overshadowed by his son, founder of the Morton Salt Company, he did rise to be President Grover Cleveland's Secretary of Agriculture and was an expert on farming and forestry with a particular interest in trees.

I work by this tree. It parks that way every day.

Salty tongue, you.
