    Around here, they contain grain. They used to be owned by farmers, but the fools got tired of controlling their own lives and sold out to capitalists. Now they have to sell their crops at harvest when the price is lowest, instead of holding them until the price is more just.

    Thanks to all for your kind comments regarding the drawing. Mr. Armstrong submitted the idea along with a photo of the coal silos from the Wheeling newspaper. The picture was taken by Shelley Hanson, a reporter (and photographer) for the paper.

    That looks like a late ’40s Ford truck.
