Readers Essays/Stories

Report from California
(Steve R.)
Thought you might be interested in some reports from the front lines.

First off, I have learned that the number of "extreme" poaching offenses in the state during 2008 increased over prior years. We have discussed this before in our correspondence and our prediction that the economic downturn will increase impacts on ecosystems seems to be materializing.

(Eric A.)

Readers Poetry

Verona U.


Lowest prices of the season
full service lubes and tune ups, transmissions
fourteen days of adventure

Discounted dreams, today only
your personal myth--
compare models and features
E-Z credit terms
make an offer
for a new and better you.
Nobody turned away.
