  • Convention a passport to lost musical territory

    California-born music writer and critic Greil Marcus once used the term “old, weird America” to refer to the sound of the songs collected on the popular and enduring “Anthology of American Folk Music.”

    The anthology itself was created by another West Coast native, Harry E. Smith, who compiled the three-album set with every American blues, folk and country song he could find. He teased out ballads, “social music” and just plain songs.

  • Stop animal waste pollution by going vegan

    Last weekend the drinking water of 400,000 Toledo residents was fouled by animal waste.

    With unfettered growth of animal agriculture and ineffective discharge regulations, it will happen again in our own state.

    The problem has become pervasive. Waste from chicken farms has rendered ocean off the East Coast unfit for fishing.

    Waste from Midwest cattle ranches carried by the Mississippi River has created a permanent “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico larger than that of the infamous 2010 BP oil spill.
