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.

I have always felt this poem to be so on target that I pinned a doodle on it and let fly with an arrow of my own.
Today’s industrial agriculture has championed the concept of acceptable amounts of pollution and used “naturally occurring” as a smoke screen to misrepresent the real dangers of their actions.
One agricultural college professor I spoke with recently took the position that the sickness and death of rural families is a small and necessary price to ensure that industrial farming has ability to feed the hungry around the world.
His ivory tower must have a dungeon.
