Does anyone doubt that someday something will be growing in the sands of Mars, to use the phrase in an old science-fiction title, just as in the fields of Kansas? Meanwhile, those black-eyed peas should lend themselves to a variation of the old Phil Harris song, ''That's What I Like About the South, er, Shuttle.''
