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.

This reprint from Family Farm Fun shows how even the most blatant environmental transgressions are being hidden and minimized on a “conspiracy” level scale. • When Agriculture’s laughably ineffective “voluntary guidelines” and “nutrient plans” risk exposure; they divert attention with a dog-and-pony show. • The “9 Point Plan” and similar events are Industrial Agriculture’s answer to public outcry; and a way to avoid enacting any restrictions on polluting that would erode their profits. • Using studies and data gathering, committees and comments, updated “voluntary guidelines” and “nutrient plans,” and of course, the help of politicians and bureaucrats; a good 9 Point Plan can provide a 10 year respite in regulatory oversight of agricultural pollution. • Some impaired waterbodies are now undergoing their second “9 Point Plan” cycle. And not only can’t politicians seem to see this new “elephant in the room” — they can’t even smell the carcass of the last one.
