Indian Corn

(Toledo, OH) One of the highlights of the fall season in the Midwest is undoubtedly the acquisition of a dozen ears or so of dried Indian corn, a term that some find derogatory. We could substitute it with something like "multicolored maize cultivars," but I suspect that this would not go over well in the Halloween parties for elementary school students.

Whatever you decide to call it, Indian corn brings us closer to the concept of the fall harvest, something that consumer societies are increasingly divorced from, spending much more time and attention on such items as home gym equipment.
