The Culture of Death

Filed under: another perspective — hannah @ 6:14 am

It is predominant in the U.S. Nothing energizes and unites our people more than someone’s death. There’s an excellent example in the narrative of the response to the premature expiration of Brandi Livingston of Broadwater, Nebraska. I haven’t left a comment on the post at DailyKos because it would be rude to question whether the community for whom Mrs.Livingston labored for 26 years had cared enough to insure she had adequate health care. Dying at age fifty of cancer suggests not. But then, cancer care and treatment in the U.S. are also part of the culture of death. Human husbandry is its antecedant.
Broadwater, NE I did not know there are towns outside of Mississippi with dirt streets. Must be really dusty when the winds blow across the prairie at 3100 feet.

Congressional Incumbents Have Low Approval Rating!

Filed under: another perspective — hannah @ 5:00 am

That’s the conclusion of a new Pew poll.

Well, it’s sort of hard to approve of a job that’s not getting done.

But, the electorate’s dissatisfaction is a sleeper issue that Congressional incumbents are particularly reluctant to talk about. Because it reveals them as vulnerable.

Waterbodies

Filed under: Hannah's views — hannah @ 6:11 pm

All waterbodies, both natural and man-made, should be buffered by a twenty- five foot strip free from man-made structures, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and artificial fertilizers to prevent pollution. I’d include swimming pools, but that’s perhaps going too far.
Also, I’d argue that the reason public agencies are exempt from getting permits from the EPA and their state agents is because they are already committed to implementing the highest environmental enhancement standards in conjunction with their public works.

When conservation engineers speak of brush and noxious weeds.

Turtle Tale

Filed under: Uncategorized — hannah @ 12:38 pm

Not turtle soup caliber

This is the same stupid painted turtle I rescued off the lawn the other day and put in the pond. Apparently, he didn’t like it there, so today he was headed down the path through the meadow which was about to be hayed. It seems he has a charmed life, since his last encounter with a machine just took a tiny chunk out of his shell. After his photo session in the bowl on the counter, I took him down to the creek at the bottom of the field. Let’s hope he stays until the haying is done.
