    Hi Ralph,

    I think your link to this story may have an extra “http”.

    Thank you, it’s fixed now. For some reason the last couple days WordPress decided to “help” everyone by adding the “http” in the link to begin with, so if you just drop the link into the dialog box, you end with 2 “http”s. Very irritating because it really slows things down and causes errors.

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
