Time for a new Profile. Times have changed and I haven’t — or maybe it’s just that times haven’t changed and I haven’t either. There seems to be just the same kinds of foolish behavior and self-interest as when I was growing up.
I remember reading about changes that occurred in the coloration of moths, as nature selected them to blend with an increasingly polluted environment. It used to be the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that endangered our society; now it’s the wolves in shepherd’s clothing we should be looking out for.
Same evil; different vernacular.

It’s a common occurrence in satire to question whether something is actually satirical or not. Since the Cornithaca County book is intended to challenge the reader, I have tried not to give even that solid ground. Some parts are obviously outrageous and others quite “sensible.” It’s easy today to only connect with the people and sites that reinforce your beliefs and not be exposed to different ways of viewing the world. Thinking and learning can be uncomfortable, but there’s a comfort in realizing you are part of a larger world than you ever knew existed. • • A larger image of the advertisement can be viewed on my blog: Rural Tompkins County – The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Credentials.
