Commentary: Why did the apple cross the road?

My big-city cousin Bernice brought her 4-year-old son up to the farm for a visit. One afternoon, we were out under the apple trees in the backyard, taking in the view from the garden. The ground was littered with ripe apples that had fallen off the trees. Little Billy reached down, picked up an apple and started to take a bite out of it.
