Can an anthology of writings focused on the people of the Delta help put a face on this little understood region? These folks think so. And they need your help.

Most days we go quietly about our work, but then one day we are asked for an interview. As a former business person turned academic, I hope to deepen the conversation on the role of scholarship in public discourse, community, and policy.

Like this one. Do you see the sign there on the left? It is obscured by the light poll but you can make it out. There were dozens of those marked as such mixed in with these other kinds of cars...can you let me know what you think?

There were dozens and many of them marked “liquefied petroleum gas.” I have other photos, maybe you could verify? I would be interested. I just decided to snap a few photos at the end after waiting several minutes watching these tank cars pass.

The bicycles and I waiting for the commuter train as dozens of tank cars of petroleum gas roll by in the morning sun. This is (still) our future and our past.

I think I will answer this soon in a future post...when I have had more than 75 minutes with these gems and I’ve recovered from the shock of finding them.

Just drove 5 hours & $50 in tolls/food/parking to spend 75 minutes unwrapping & digitizing lost & untouched sources that it took me 2 years & a million phone calls to track down. These sources are amazing.
