You knew people were probably friendly the second they walked up.  I wore a mask. We’d chat as long as they wanted.  I could point at the big copse of trees across the field that are doomed.  They’d take info about how to formally object.  Some said they’d seen our discussions on the NextDoor neighborhood blog.  

Thanks so much to Daily Kos for providing a forum for me to publish “Save The Redwoods” a few days ago.  People have seen it and liked it and some even signed up for Daily Kos!

I’m trying to stop Chevron from building a gas station on the very edge of a forested wetland, and cutting down the forested part.

Ah, organizing mano a mano.  People are still wonderful, from the chemical engineer to the guy fishing for blue gill.
