WILD UTAH WEEDS WON COLD WAR

It was "Earth Day 1990" and I decided not to use weed killer around my roses. In 1992, I started again to pull out my wild morning glory. After pulling out one with 9,000 miles of root, I realized it was the one that spread through the USSR, ruining their farm equipment, breaking their machinery and ruining their wheat production. It had grown right through the Earth, not even hurt by the Earth's molten center.

Remember it is the wild Utah morning glory that deserves the credit for winning the Cold War. Can anyone lend me a back brace?R.K. Henderson
