Rural /'roorel/: adjective.
Characteristic of the countryside.

Ethicist /'eTH-i-cist/: noun. 
An adherent (in this case) to the code
of the local homespun.
The Rural Ethicist is column about the culture of the daily mundane. It tolerates an occasional spider, finds the zen in cat box scooping, fawns over Latin botanical names, values the bull in horse sense and seeks the gleaming, stainless steel wisdom beneath a film of cooking grease. Above all, it cherishes the gem of our shared existence: family.
