I found a couple of articles that I thought needed attention. In one, a man goes to jail for "illicit water use" because he created ponds on his 170 acre property and in another, a man is facing a fine (or I don't know what, fine or jail) for having a vegetable garden in his front yard. In both cases, it is the local governments exerting its power over the people. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against government, but I am against wasting government resources. Don't we pay these people to do something constructive? The crazy part is that these two stories come from completely opposite sides of the country: Oregon and Florida.
With the state of the economy and the certainty that it will only get worse, I think everyone should be considering water sources and food supply. I know I am. What about you?
