New York State’s awesome legislature has today addressed a long-standing issue that needed resolution…by making corn the state vegetable.

Corn is, of course, a grain.

I am more and more reminded of George Carlin discussing news media reporting on Mickey Mouse’s birthday: “No wonder nobody takes our country seriously anymore; we spend valuable television time informing our citizens of the age of an imaginary rodent.”

    And tomatoes are fruit, because they have seeds. But I see your point.

    Great to know a state legislature has their priorities straight, about as well-handled as Pennsylvania's.

    If it was between corn and their other selection, onions, I would have gone with onions.
