notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

The 1st Amendment

Argubaly the most protected and under used right in the U.S of A. Its protective properties over citizens stops at the steps of the Supreme Court of the United States. You can protest on the sidewalk by it, but unfurl a banner on its gleaming marble steps, and you`re officially "making a harangue", and you will get arrested.

VA's very own VADP took part in such a harangue to protest the death penalty; and Jack Payden Travers was arrested for his part in the protest and made it into the Washington Post and New York Times. Way to disobey civilly Jack.
