Eric Bergeson's The Country Scribe
Since 1997, Eric has owned and operated Bergeson Nursery, rural Fertile, MN, a business his grandfather started in 1937. With the active participation of his parents, who owned the business for the previous twenty five years, and his younger brother Joe, who is now president of the company, the business has nearly tripled in size during Eric’s ownership tenure. The holder of a Master of Arts in History from the University of North Dakota, Eric has taught courses in history and political science at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. He is also an adjunct lecturer in history for Hamline University, St. Paul, MN. Eric’s hobbies include Minnesota Twins baseball, Bach organ music, bookstores, hiking, photography, singing old country music with his brother Joe, and watching the wildlife on the swamp in front of his house eight miles outside of Fertile, Minn.

Another appalling example of children being exploited for the delight of the masses. This genre is amongst the sickest public spectacles afloat today: In a full stadium, a child is surprised by the appearance of his or her father (haven't seen a mother yet) back from deployment. The video is replayed by millions. The poor kid's vulnerablity is on display for all to see, and people think it is tear jerking and cute--no worry about the exploitation of the kid. 

I put these sick displays right up there with piercing a toddler's ears in the utter unthinking use of a child to satisfy the emotional needs of adults.
