I love stories and Steve Hartman recently shared a great one.

Enterprise, Alabama, is in the southern part of the state. All aspects of the town’s income have always revolved around agriculture. They grew cotton for generations. In the teens of the last century the boll weevil was sweeping through the South. It almost totally destroyed the cotton industry, which was the case in Enterprise. Today if you visit the city, however, you will find a monument in the town center dedicated to the Boll Weevil. Why do you suppose that is the case?
