The Sun Interview

Sowing Dissent: Lunatic Farmer Joel Salatin Digs In
“The idea that local organic food is too expensive is largely a fabrication. If you say you can’t afford it, I want to go to your house right now, and I don’t want to . . . see designer jeans with holes already in the knees. I don’t want to see flat-screen TVs.”
By Tracy Frisch

“Country things are the necessary root of our life — and that remains true even of a rootless and tragically urban civilization. To live permanently away from the country is a form of slow death.”

Fiction by Michael Shilling
[May 2003]
“Daisy made my heart stop. She had full, strawberry lips, big green eyes, and glossy skin. She wore her shaggy blond hair in two loose pigtails that looked like sparklers, and her ripe body had a dangerous majesty. She was the same age as us, but seemed ageless and immortal. She was the collision of bliss and trouble.”
