"My people have been here for seven generations. I am the
voice of the dispossessed, white and black. Between the dev-eloper and the tax man, the things I love are vanishing. My county is growing 12% a year, one of the fastest this side of
Las Vegas. Everybody who comes here loves the very things
they are destroying by their presence, the clean water, the
woods, the wildlife. I'd like to send all the more recent
arrivals back to where they came from, but barring that, I'd
like those who remain to tread lightly on this land I love."
