A few years ago, I was awarded a Professional Development Course for artists. Part of the homework was to write an Artist Statement. I worked and worked; polishing an eliminating, until I only had the kernel that was “me.” When I read it out; I was told: “That’s what everyone would say.”
I got tired of being known as just “Doug,” or “Oh, him,” or “If he’s coming; I’m not going,” and decided to remake my image — “Doug the Beloved” [the guy who used to be just “him.”] I was just about to announce this, when there was a Pandemic and the bar was closed — why does this sort of thing always happen to me?

The people involved in formulating them have nothing to lose if they are proven ineffective; and a great deal to lose by opposing the powerful interests that continue to pollute and profit. These interests in turn, can answer resident’s concerns with the “we are following all the regulations and guidelines” excuse while continuing to pollute without abatement. • As well as being worthless as a tool for remediation; regulators remove any possible effectiveness by postponing, eliminating, offsetting, and not enforcing the actions and regulations that these plans do have. • Rather than a flow of righteous concern and oversight for the world we live in; these plans will only siphon tax dollars to pay for the incentives, tax breaks and subsidies that will provide the sum total of actual benefit. • These are not plans that will fix our lakes — these are plans that are made when you don’t want to make a plan that will fix our lakes.
