Just as high gas prices have sent Indian farmers looking to the camel as a less costly alternative to farm tractors, an American farmer in Tennessee has begun using a pair of mules to work his fields. T.R. Warren says it's more economical to feed the pair, named Dolly and Molly, than it is to buy fuel. Warren's son, Danny, told the Associated Press that the mules are -- irony alert -- the "way of the future." What's next? Trading in the pickup for a horse and wagon? Keep this up and it'll be like "Little House on the Prairie" all over again.
