Just after I finished an article about illegal immigration on my brand new blog ( at www.standup4truth.blogspot.com ) yesterday, it really hit home. We don't have a lawn mower yet, so we had to get someone to get it done. They brought a Mexican immigrant (an FOB) to cut the grass, and he also cut down half of a small cornfield that was next to the grass. It was clearly marked but he deliberately went in the walk-in opening, possibly with quasi-political malicious intent. Now the young maize plants (cornstalks) were about 6 in. (15cm) tall, and they were mowed down to 3 in. by the doggone push mower. About half of their height. My question is: will the corn be able to regrow after this? If so, how much time has been lost in the growing process of the corn?
