Quotes of the Week

I mapped out some of the agricultural supply places in the area. Even if they’ve been cleaned out, my bet is the sorghum would be untouched. Now, that there is a criminally underrated grain that could change the game of our food situation from scary to hunky-dunky.

— Eugene Porter, in “The Walking Dead”
