Since I mentioned Boyd's appearance in a Post article, I should give equal time to the BBC, where a sound bite from Boyd was included in their piece on the impact of the partial shutdown of the government.
In fairness to Boyd, I suspect he has a reputation for giving good quotes to the media--he's articulate. In the last century I was bit dubious of him, thinking he was more a paper farmer than a real one. But apparently he's (re?)married with kids now and still going with soybeans, getting older along with all the rest of us.
