There have been some subtle changes around the town square of Greenfield, Iowa (pop. 2,244), where the real grass roots grow. The Ideal Cafe, dispensary of ribaldry, weak coffee and occasional political wisdom, has metamorphosed into Toad's Place, so named for a town boy who went to California but in the nick of time saved his soul, bought the business and headed back.
The customers at Toad's are mostly the same, but the talk is a little different.
These folks are not at all certain that the presidential caucuses have worked out...
