Hey, now. Tom Paulson is actually on our side -- I talked to him for some time. This article is written as it is because American newspapers can't possibly publish anything written for anyone older than about 12 years.

As for Kent...it's a nondescript suburb of Seattle. It used to be a small farming community called Titusville, but around the turn of the last century it was renamed in a PR move -- it was a major hop growing region, so they named it after that other source of hops, the Kent district of England. So don't blame them too much...come on, "Titusville"? You can't get a name that sounds much more like a hick town than that.
