Dec 7th 2011 11:42PM Sarah, I was not aware of that one. COOL! Thanks for telling me about it.
Dec 7th 2011 1:02PM The Boll Weevil Monument in Enterprise Alabama. It sits in the middle of Main St. It is the only monument ever erected to an agricultural pest. The history behind it is when the boll weevil devstated the coton crop in the deep South, the farmers were forced to plant a different crop-- peanuts. Currently, more than half of the peanut supply is grown in the deep South. The boll weevil actually saved the economy. For more information go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boll_Weevil_Monument
