In a local restaurant this morning my wife and I ordered coffee and toast. When the waitress brought the ice water, I asked for /clean glass, because she had her hand wrapped around the lip or upper edge of the glass she had given me. The manager must have heard my complaint, came to our booth and told me if I didn't like the dirty glass, I could use the one given to a guest we had sitting with us. When the waitress brought our guest check someone had written "no charge, do not return because no one will wait on you." We paid and left. My wife is also a waitress at this restaurant!! What next??

Brent Olson talks Apr. 30 in Clinton One million people a week read Brent Olson's column "'Independently Speaking." A farmer who raises corn, wheat, and soybeans on the edge of the prairie in western Minnesota, Olson lives on the farm homesteaded by his great-grandparents 120 years ago. Starting with a weekly article in the Clinton-Graceville Northern Star, his column is now carried nationwide by DTN/FarmDayta Satellite News Service and worldwide by Successful Farming's online magazine. He also writes on the editorial page of Northern Spirit, a state-wide magazine for Minnesota United Methodists. His work, although containing more lies and fabrications than you would look for in most serious publications, is grounded firmly in his quarter of a century of marriage. fatherhood, and farming. By turns funny, heartwarming, but always thoughtful. Brent Olson will make you laugh, he may make you cry, he'll definitely leave you wanting more.
