Of Farmers and Environmentalists

Christopher Bunn, a friend of mine from former grad school days is continuing to fight a long battle in central coastal California for the autonomy of the local farmers there. His family owns a lettuce farm, and though i must confess i still am under-informed about the plight of farmers in environmentally-charged areas, it sounds like a pretty tough battle.

Christopher's written/recorded a slew of great protest and political songs about this and other topics. Whether or not you agree with his conclusions, the process is darn entertaining to listen to.

My favorites include

Hey CB...thanks for the link! Yeah, it's a freakishly complicated issue. Being watched with great interest from all quarters in CA. 3 billion dollar ag industry at stake... all about power. The frogs are just pawns. Unwitting tools.
