OK…first time this thought occurred to be was one day when she and I were looking out at the front yard. It was spring, dandelions were sprouting all over the place… and she says, ” Oh! The dandelions are just dreadful! I wish they never had banned DDT! That stuff actually worked. You didn’t have all this mess all over your yard. I’ll tell you, back then, you got your money’s worth when you bought something. Things did what they were supposed to do!”
She was wrong in any case. DDT wouldn’t have done a thing to those dandelions - it’s an insecticide, not an herbicide.
Use Agent Orange on the dandelions, that’s a good herbicide
Wow… Agent orange…
I actually have a (semi) personal story about Agent Orange… My Uncle (who had been in Viet Nam) and my Aunt had a baby when I was like 7 yrs old. She seemed perfectly normal when she was a baby, but as she grew up, it was discovered that she had some unknown nerve defect that was slowly crippling her. Apparently, it was determined that it’s cause was the Agent Orange my uncle had been exposed to… no cure… she will suffer until this kills her.
