You hit the nail on the head....we've got a big problem with this in Humboldt. Thanks for shining your light on it.
This is just a fantastic article, Thad! Of all of the great stuff you've written over the years, I think this might be my favorite :-) Betty Chinn is a force of nature, and your writing has done her justice.
How about dandelions? What do they tell us about the soil?
I'm surprised you didn't dig into Clean Green Certification for this article or interview owners of the Humboldt County Collective, who seem to rely on this certification:
I don't know if you realize how you come across in these posts….but your tone definitely does not convey that of someone who is interested in "working together for a better Humboldt County community. All of it, no one left out, no one branded and targeted for political attack and personal smears….etc.". Instead it sounds like somebody who is at war and has clearly decided who is us and who is them. I realize that you are probably frustrated with this process, as are many other people. But the inflammatory communication style may not be furthering your cause.
That's beautiful :-)
Thanks for another great article, Thaddeus!
Exposing the complexities around this issue will foster needed community dialogue, and hopefully lead towards reducing middle-of-the-night releases for individuals who are at a higher risk of getting into/creating dangerous situations.
