DEAR SIR... Please Save Our Planet - Where I talk about shifting baseline syndrome and includes a link to a free and awesome song, a link to a mind-opening article, buffalo, a letter that was hidden for 70 years written by William Temple Hornaday, passenger pigeons and pirates. And it's all free.
While listening to NPR Remix the other day, I was struck by a song they were using in a piece about William Temple Hornaday. The song is called Dear Sir and is performed by Black Prairie. You can actually listen to it in full...

Have Haiku in you?
Send SEAL Team 666 verse
to me for award

I haven't figured out what the award will be, but I'll think of something. Post them in the comments section of my blog along with whatever attribution you want. I'll keep this alive for about a week, then make a decision.

Introduction

Weston Ochse (pronounced 'Oaks) (1965 - Present) lives in Southern Arizona with his wife, and fellow author, Yvonne Navarro, and Great Danes, Pester Ghost Palm Eater and Goblin Monster Dog. For entertainment he races tarantula wasps, wrestles rattlesnakes, and bakes in the noonday sun. His work has won the Bram Stoker Award for First Novel and been nominated for a Pushcart Prize for short fiction. His work has also appeared in anthologies, magazines and professional writing guides. He thinks it's damn cool that he's had stories in comic books.

Weston holds Bachelor's Degrees in American Literature and Chinese Studies from Excelsior College. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from National University. Weston is a retired U.S. Army intelligence officer and current intelligence officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency. He has been to more than fifty countries and speaks Chinese with questionable authority. Weston is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a purple belt in Ryu Kempo Jujitsu and a green belt in the Hawaiian martial art of Kuai Lua.
