Steinbeck Country in 2013: The Good Old Boy Network is Alive and Well

Apparently, that smallness of mind since Steinbeck’s time hasn’t gone away. It lingers, and not just among the drunks but among ranchers, land and property owners too, and conservatives who balk at any liberal idea.

(CAYUCOS, CA) - Cayucos, California I met a longtime resident at the local bar the other night who challenged me on just about everything from the moment I walked in.

“You live around here?” Sure, I said. He introduced me to his wife of 40-plus years, a beauty, stately and queenly. He told me she’s from a long line of settlers who moved here in the 19th century. She smiled at me, like a queen.

Investigative Journalism In Mainstream Media: From Flaccid to MIA to DOA

Those who wish to be informed need vehicles like Salem-News!

(LAGUNA BEACH) - For better or for worse, here is my editor, Tim King, the face of investigative journalism at Gee, what took them so long? Mainstream Media (MM) are now openly admitting that investigative journalism, theirs in particular, whether in print or on the web, has been dwindling for quite some time.

Unlike the first stages of an intervention, getting someone beyond denial and to admit they have a problem, MM have totally capitulated and abandoned altogether the turf of engagement that formerly gave unique insights

CalDesal 1st Annual Desalination Conference in Irvine CA

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they’ve tried everything else.” Winston Churchill

(LAGUNA BEACH, CA) - Desalination I’ve intuitionally felt for quite some time the resonance of Churchill’s quote in regards to desalination in general:

Have NGOs Taken A 1988 California Insurance Revolt And Turned It Into A Cash Cow?

(LAGUNA BEACH, CA) - Rod Serling & His Staff Would Have Had A Blast With Intervenor Compensation Dynamics I’ve seen and heard a lot on my 15-year eco-watch, yet this pulling back of the drapes, this highly compensated intervention strategy kind of gave me the creeps. It has an eerie, freaky and other-worldly feeling to it.

Never having known or heard of it, maybe I could have milked the system long ago and retired to Hawai’i if I had!

Reclaimed, Reused and Recovered Water In South OC

“You can never step in the same water twice for new water is always flowing upon you.” Heraclitus of Ephesus circa 500 B.C.

(LAGUNA BEACH, CA) - Things that make you go If you’ve ever seen that sculpture by Rodin, titled “Le Ponseur” (The Thinker) then you’re familiar with the strong depiction of a man posed in deep metaphysical contemplation….or a profoundly depressed guy who just got dumped by his S.O.
