You may not hear about it on NPR, but Old McDonald is in crisis. This is not a drought problem, or about federal farm subsidies. This is about preschoolers who don't know that cows say MOO. How are we going to EIEIO? The preschoolers are here a cluck, there a duck, everybody run amok. It happens every year, so I shouldn't be surprised that city kids no longer have any experience with farms. Drives between Omaha and Lincoln, NE, were such a regular feature of my sons' preschool years they knew the names of all the farm implements by age five. Old McDonald had to sing about those implements in the car as well as all his animals.
