The first time I saw John Block in action, he was running 10 miles down country roads, training for a marathon.

He was Secretary of Agriculture and a line of farmers in pickups was following him across the Illinois countryside with each one taking its turn to drive beside him and tell Mr. Block what they thought. Today’s commentary is the same – Almost 40 years later, he is still listening to neighbors’ views about America.
