Crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday

Sophia the Cavalier Spaniel hasn't been a regular part of my life since the spring of 2014, but she crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday and was a great dog. I miss her.

Filing this under an "allies" tag because every dog is an ally for the people in its life.

Not easy being Green

The gimlet-eyed David Warren observes how often "organic" and "green" labeling serves vested interests at the expense of the little guys:

"You have to be a big, faceless, industrial operation to afford the official “organic” labels that sucker big city consumers into paying double for essentially the same goods. That the whole system is massively corrupt, can almost go without saying. It was designed to be."

As Robert Vincent asserts in a separate essay, doctrinaire environmentalism is, for well-connected practitioners, a means to an end.
