Songbob ADD: The Grape Pickers Tragedy (Jack Warshaw) (8) RE: Looking for a version of 'Deportees' 08 Jul 09

"Crop Duster's Lament" is "The Grape Pickers Tragedy"

I'm sorry, but the story line doesn't make any damned sense. Why would they be dusting during harvest? I could see it if it was a mistake -- they dusted the wrong field. And I can easily see that the growers wouldn't quibble at the death of a simple grape picker. But the story just doesn't hold up as written.

Sorry. There is "truthiness," but no truth. Unless someone can enlighten me about crop-dusting practices.
