    That article requires a subscription. I would like to hear more about this if anyone can fill me in.

    That’s odd. When I first posted it, a subscription page didn’t come up. Maybe it was one of those web site’s that have free stories up for only a few hours as teasers before then move them. Ralph Maughan

    This sounds like something my area could use. The problem isn’t as chronic as Crystal Lake’s but bears do occasionally get into garbage around here.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
