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 are only three excerpts from a ten-year history of government doing nothing. • The New York State Soil and Water Conservation Committee is appointed by the Governor. Current 2020 Voting Members: Representative-At-Large for Farm Interests (Chairman), New York Farm Bureau representative, New York State Grange representative, Representative-At-Large for Urban, Suburban, and Rural Non-Farm Interests (a former farmer, currently Associate Director of an Agribusiness.) • In the New York State of Corruption: “You have to be in it to win it” — and the deeper you’re in; the more you win. • In every lake and waterway pollution remediation plan in NYS: All power is placed in the hands of farmers, politicians, and bureaucrats. Rural residents are unimportant and powerless. We don’t matter.
