Wow, northern Orange County is finally joining the modern age. I have to give a shoutout to Stephen Halkiotis, who was patient with me as a surly teenage transplant to Hilsborough in the late 80s. I am glad to see he is still involved with education and standing up for students' rights.
All the works were interesting, but the stencils were beautiful. As a craftsman, I sometimes tire of "high art" and want to see some kind of effort and skill put forth by the maker. After wandering through CAM and rolling my eyes quite a bit, the Make Ends Meet show was especially satisfying to me.
All hail the fabulous Fishscenta! Glad her photo made it in.
Sure, animals aren't people. They may not have the same rights, but they do deserve respect and consideration. I'm not a vegetarian, or a rabid environmentalist, or a supporter of PETA, but I believe we can coexist with animals and not treat them as commodities. That's why I don't eat CAFO meat or buy purebred dogs. Exploitation is WRONG.
I started a flock of backyard hens in Wilson, NC last March. I have 3 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Araucanas ("Easter egg chickens"). Raising the chicks, caring for them, and eating their abundant, fresh, and delicious eggs has been very enjoyable for my family over the past year. We have no regulations regarding chickens here in Wilson, but then again we have few enforced regulations pertaining to any animal. Congratulations to Durham for making a sensible decision. Perhaps the HENS should reward the council members with some of their excess eggs.
