RANDOLPH HERGENRODER: “Lemme tell you a little story. It’s about an earthworm named Herman. He was just a lowly worm, lower than dirt. He wasn’t a very attractive little critter. Kinda skinny and slimy, no chin. Didn’t look very good in clothes. And he had the worst of dead-end jobs. Which was to eat dirt, and digest it, and cast it off, and turn around and eat some more. And digest that, cast it off, and turn around and eat some more. That’s it. Eat and poop and eat some more. And all the while, he had to hope, when it began to rain, that he could get his little worm backside — or frontside, he could never tell — up to the surface before he drowned. It wasn’t much of a life. But I’ll tell you something about this little worm. He had himself a dream.
“Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this little squirmin’ vermin Herman had a dream. He wanted to travel. He wanted to see California. He wanted his little worm poops to grow oranges or some damn thing, not the soybeans and corn and tobacco and cotton he was crawling underneath of back in his home in eastern Arkansas. And he told this to his worm friends and they laughed at him.
