...because we are pushing the Amish out...how many Amish do you find in the center of New York City...Lancaster in the next few decades will no longer have any farmland remaining; except in a "farm" museum. Sad - but it's only a matter of time.

I respect these people. I don't agree with all of their ways, but find them to be good neighbors and very trusting. About the only group left in our society who are God fearing, hard working and loyal to their families. They are always a welcome asset.
