    Does tobacco really heal sick cattle like D and C says?

    How much did Joseph Smith’s appearance and presumed charisma help him ?
    He succeeded where Bennett and so many others failed.

    Yeah John doesn’t have an agenda at all. As demonstrated by his tomato comment. Misinformation and loaded assumptions much?

    Better go Google a little more about the history of tomatoes. Also potatoes. Very good reasons for thinking they were poisonous. Ever hear of nightshade?

      The fact that you seem wrapped around the axle about the brief side car commentary regarding tomatoes -of all things- is strange to me.

    With respect, it seemed like the three men were listening to Julia’s book report and discrediting/shooting down the info she found.
    (This may be the place I was in mentally when listening. I’m completely owning that I could have interpreted things incorrectly).
