A good friend sent me this video this morning. His father has known the gentleman featured, 91 year-old John O’Neil, for many years and attests to what a great fella he is. I don’t know Mr. O’Neil, but in the course of my work I have been fortunate to meet a lot folks like him, people who care personally and tenderly for land they have lived on for many, many years.
A nice summer respite from our catastrophic ruminations, no?
Update: Dang it. The Tusk is humbled by the usually straightforward process of “embedding” this news video into my blog. I simply cannot seem to get this thing to “embed” into the post. I will speak to the local WRAL station executive when next we meet. Surely the problem is on their end.
