The Senate has spoken. We are honoring soil. Seriously. Soil.
Thank goodness none of Indiana’s senators attached their name to the writing of this bill:
“On Monday, the Senate passed a resolution honoring soil. That’s right. Soil. I mean, isn’t soil happy to let its accomplishments speak for themselves? Sustaining life, surviving for millions of years, etc. Does it really need a nonbinding resolution to make it feel important? Seems if we were going to do something for soil we ought to at least give it a Congressional Gold Medal or something. The first sentence says it recognizes soil as an essential natural resource. I have always wondered whether soil is an essential natural resource, and now I know. The Senate has spoken.”
