BASIN'S VIEW ON THE ROYAL WEDDING

1. It is probably instructional to be reminded that there are still a few countries where the term "Commoner" still has meaning. It's kind of like watching a 60 minutes crew drive through Albania. It's nice to be reminded of anachronisms;

2. We should never really miss a chance to teach our daughters that fulfillment is defined as whether she can marry a man of title, wealth or accomplishment--as opposed to what she can accomplish herself;

3. Don't these people realize that the NFL Draft is still going on? There are just certain things you don't do and competing with an Icon like Cam Newton is one of them.

You can always marry more money than you can earn.

Hello Cameron!

I’m a campaign organizer for 1 Mississippi, a public communications campaign dedicated to protecting the Mississippi River. I’ve been stalking your blog for a while. Great work here! Your views on/coverage of the River and policy issues make me think you’d be interested in writing about Title II of the Farm Bill – Conservation Funding.

Most media outlets aren’t covering these vital pieces of legislation that keep getting gutted.
Over the years, Congress has created effective and efficient conservation programs like the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, Conservation Stewardship Program, Wetlands Reserve Program, and Conservation Reserve Program. These programs support farmers, help farmers reduce their pollution and protect our water quality. I am outraged that no one is picking up this story! It is Congress’ job to give us things like clean water. Instead, they’re cutting our access to it.

If you’re interested, I can send you more information or write a guest column on Conservation Funding in the Farm Bill. Our campaign has working with activists on the ground to send letters to the editor and Op-Eds all over the country.

Keep up the great work!
