Like Paul Harvey himself, the ad is sentimental to the point of being silly.
It is hero-worshipping to the point of being utterly dishonest.
It is almostly completely outdated in this age of corporate farming.
But—largely because it was bought back by the line, "To the farmer in all of us."—it was on the right side, rather than on the wrong side (like last year's Chrysler ad was) of total bullshit.
In fact, I loved it.
How about you?
