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.

Ag-gag laws and physical obstructions are only two of the barriers that are used to protect industrial farming methods — farming promotion messages, food corporation ads, land grant colleges, politicians, bureaucrats, and media handouts, all take their turn in persuading the American people that agricultural pollution and animal mistreatment is accidental, rare, unforeseen, blown out of proportion, misunderstood, naturally occurring, and misreported for profit, thereby minimizing and deflecting any possible image of wrongdoing.
How many people look past that?
