The CleverChip (yo, TL, he's in Portland) reports on his visit to a member of his local permaculture guild. It's a very fascinating read.
It makes me remember fondly the rabbit wacker scene in Michael Moore's "Roger and Me"...only without the condescension and sarcasm.
While you're visiting The Chimp check out his red pill post. This post is loaded with good thought and ideas. I think it's brilliant.
