[Guest columnist Keith Brand:] When I heard that documentarian Ken Burns was planning on bringing his prodigious talents to documenting the history of country music, I was excited.

[Editor's note: Edward R. Murrow's 1960 CBS documentary, Harvest of Shame, is a staple of my TV History & Appreciation class at Rowan University. This term, it spurred an inspirational reaction from two of my students, in a blog posted here on TVWW. Amazingly, the same class has generated another unexpected bounty: a reaction from Edgar Aquino-Huerta, who lives an amazing double life: farm worker by day, media student by night. His very personal account follows. -DB]

[Editor's note: On occasion, when I stumble across an atypically smart and creative student in one of my Rowan University media courses, I invite him or her to submit a guest blog on a TV subject of their choosing. Shannon Farrell chose a tricky and unusual topic, and wrote a lengthy but well-crafted treatise. So here it is. -DB]
