Our own Mainewriter has an article in today's Bangor Daily News that speaks to our way of life, our connection with the land, hunting, respect for wildlife and Maine traditions.

Why Do You Hunt? – Robin's Outdoors - BDN Maine Blogs

Nicely done, Mainewriter

Thank you, NMLM! I'm going to write about a controversial topic next week.

Thanks, Mainebrokerman. I appreciate that a lot.

Bill, I bet your son will enjoy hunting. It's a good, honest way to put food on the table, learn new skills and spend time together. It might turn into a nice tradition!

Controversial topics are healthy and good for our society. It's an effective sorting process. I look forward to it.

Tomorrow morning I'll be on a one hour radio program from 9 to 10 AM on land issues.

Good article, and I live in factory farm land where hogs are really raised in the condition described, and have been for years.

What station? I think I'm going to be home tomorrow morning and would enjoy listening. I'll be reading on Writer's Forum on WERU this fall with John Ford. I've been nervous since being asked months ago. I'll be glad when this is old hat so that I can relax and enjoy.

I'm going to write about bear baiting, something I passionately hated not long ago. I'm going to ask an outfitter to take me on a bear hunt with dogs. My current opinion is based on emotion rather than fact. I need to step up, swallow it and have a hands-on lesson so that my opinion is based on personal knowledge and facts.

I started to learn about factory farming about 15 years ago from a friend who lives in North Las Vegas and works at a hog "farm." She was under the impression that all pigs are vicious killers that can't be touched. I'd be mean if someone made me live in misery.

The show is archived here:

Constitutional Radio Network:
TalkShoe - Audio

You can download it and listen at your convenience. It is a weekly show, but the episodes can be downloaded. Today's show is background about how we got to where we are now. It's just a little slice of the whole story, an outline of pertinent facts from the Vikings to now in Maine.
