I have opinions about water district folks, and one of those opinions is that if a writer from Wired calls for comments, they are unlikely to reply. I suspect there's a good bit of, "Who the *&^ is this?" and, "I'm not going to talk to every curious grumble grumble grumble."
So when i read a Wired story about a fight over water releases for salmon late this week i filed the content under "ignore" and went looking for real news. Sac Bee articles were brief and not helpful (turning quickly to metering urban users and ripping out lawns). The Wall Street Journal railed against greens and Democrats. An article in the Western Farm Press answered my questions with clear and complete writing. I promptly left comment thanking the author, and then decided to write directly instead. And now Western Farm Press is added to my news feed.
Feeling a bit drifty.
