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.

To the elite of Cornithaca County; the only wrongdoing is not getting what you want. Smiles, shouts, assurances and denunciations are only tools of the policy making that insures their continued profit. • In a county that is almost universally thought of as thoroughly corrupt and without any meaningful public participation, the elite launch “ethics” probes against people who oppose their plans. • • What do they do when they themselves are accused of misconduct? They refuse to do anything; they refuse to acknowledge the accusation, they refuse to investigate, they refuse to carry out their sworn duty under the law, they just refuse. They decide what they want to do, and that’s that. • • Their actions and arrogance demand something beyond “hypocritical” — that’s “Cornithaca County.”
