To the Editor: America's Tipping Point..., Genesis 2:27... So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

It’s just over a year now since I first came to Mason County. Travelling down from the Pacific Northwest, we’d spent some time in Big Bend Park, and then headed north through a number of counties taken over and all but decimated by fracking.

Lucas Hinch did what I’ve wanted to do many, many times over the years. No doubt you’ve wanted to do it, too. But you didn’t, because as much as you wanted to do it you knew, deep down, that it would have made you feel really, really good. And there’s no telling where that would have led. Lucas got mad at his computer, just like I’ve done, just like you’ve done, countless times.
