This book has grown; not as a sequel; but from the same roots. It embodies my decision to be more confrontational – and my beliefs of human worth, and worth of creativity and independent thought.
In some ways; this book gives graphical life to the documentary evidence set down in “Tompkins County and Tammany Hall”; but it also is more open to solution and love than a recounting of the past, even an impassioned one, can be.
To those who say; “How dare you claim that we are doing evil” – I reply: “How dare you do what you are doing; and claim otherwise.”

If someone were to ask you to do something; if there were even the smallest chance of it injuring your child – you would say; “No, I won’t gamble with the life of my child.” But when technologies inherently risk all life on earth – you are willing to take that small chance; for a small benefit.
If words like “Extinction,” and “Apocalypse” are written too big for anything but videogames and movies: you need to step back a bit.
We now have the power to do incalculable things — and we have authorities who are eager to use that power.
Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
After repeated complaints about hundreds of thru-cutting dump trucks to County representatives; requesting a 4 TON weight limit on our rural road; the County Highway Director stated “I have researched the area and talked to highway officials in Lansing and they report there are no large through haul trucks utilizing Lansingville Road.” • Photos documenting this truck traffic was sent with no response. Suddenly signs appeared stating a limit of “20 TONS” — a weight limit that would ensure continued road usage by these thru-cutting trucks, and five times the 4 TON weight limit of every other local road. • A complaint letter sent to the Deputy County Administrator resulted in a response that completely ignored the Highway Director’s false claims and strange behavior; saying that the Director “posted the road at 20 tons to limit through traffic of large trucks”. A follow up email urging the County to address the facts of the complaint was ignored. • From there on; County authorities stonewalled and refused to comment or acknowledge any communication. • • The full story will be recounted in the upcoming expose: “Tompkins County and Tammany Hall [I can’t seem to find any difference at all]”
