A Nutrition Science Leviathan
It is often said that people from Missouri are plain spoken and honest. President Harry S. Truman was born in Lamar, Missouri. Former Vice President John Nance Garner supposedly said of President Truman that he “is honest and patriotic and has a head full of common sense. Besides, he has guts.” That same description applies to Missouri native Joel D. Wallach.
Like Perkins, Wallach was one who has lived by his word. If he made a deal, he abided by its terms and expected others to do the same. He had promised at his interview for the St. Louis Zoo to do anything they desired him to do so long as he was given a chance to work with his idol, Marlin Perkins. When he was asked therefore to evacuate the colons of elephants so they would not discharge large quantities of dung while doing circus acts, Wallach obliged without complaint. He had said he would do whatever was required, and he fulfilled that pledge. With bare hands and arms, as was the practice, he put his entire arms deep into the colons of the elephants and removed as much excrement as he could muster. Even hardy farm boys would recoil from this dangerous and offensive task, but not Joel Wallach; he said he would do whatever it took to work with the famed Marlin Perkins. Wallach was a man of his word.
Wallach, like Perkins, is also plain spoken. He does not coat his expression with insincere compliment, caveats, or hyperbole. He speaks to the point without sugar coating. Wallach has always been one known for his frankness and unvarnished presentation. He will not cow to the generally accepted position or bite his tongue while others profess it if he knows that the position conflicts with science and logic. He has always been one to reveal hypocrisy without fear of retaliation from those who stand to lose from the telling of the truth.
