This being my last editorial for the ISU Veterinarian, I had big plans for something pithy and provocative, but I don't feel very opinionated today. One of the advantages of being editoristhe luxury ofputting onesfeet on the desk and, ifyou will, "spouting off'. Therefore, instead of opinion, I offer a story. To my way ofthinking the human heart is often more receptive to a story than it is to opinion. I call this one "Quill Pig".
