This article discusses the events leading up to an Iowa farmer’s shooting of his wife & banker, & his subsequent suicide. Although these tragic events were described by the media as being the direct result of the farm crisis, the author suggests that his problems were less severe than those of many of his neighbours & many were created by his own shortcomings as a farm manager.
