Yet another triumph of peer reviewed science

Yesterday's Pioneer Press noted that farmers pay more for health insurance than other people. Conspicuously absent from the analysis is the fact that the average age of farmers is in the fifties, and farmers tend to have bigger families than the rest of us. Nah, we can't consider the possibility that age and family size have something to do with this. There is the possibility of a new state or federal program to "help" to be had here--can't bother with the facts!
