I’m Doug from the inside out, and these books are a part, but just a part, of me.
I’m very independent in thought and action, so a conventional appearance is restful, protective, and a little amusing.
I like and respect people with very different views from my own.
The Rural Social Justice thread in these books is the armature that gives structure to pieces intended to provoke, inspire and feed the reader’s thinking and imagination.
Few people will read them; but it only takes one to make all the difference.
I’m not passing a torch — I’m just holding the door.

These 6-pages from the book can be copied [or scanned and printed] and cut out to make a playable board game based on the classic “Snakes and Ladders.” The ladders are climbed by “using” the virtues of others, and players are pushed down the chutes when they in turn are used through the vices of others. • There is no great or hidden message, only a cautionary theme for today’s social interactions. As one of the pages states: “You know you live in Cornithaca County: When it’s better to start a non-profit to feed the poor, than to feed the poor.” — Users come in many guises. •• A larger image of the gamer is viewable in my blog: “Rural Tompkins County – The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Credentials”
