"Sharp, quirky, and occasionally nettlesome", Walking the Berkshires is my personal blog, an eclectic weaving of human narrative, natural history, and other personal passions with the Berkshire and Litchfield Hills as both its backdrop and point of departure. I am interested in how land and people, past and present manifest in the broader landscape and social fabric of our communities. The opinions I express here are mine alone. Never had ads, never will.
UPDATE 1/28/2009 All possession charges were dismissed in February, 2007. As a courtesy to the defendant, I have therefore removed the rest of this article and included code to instruct Google's crawlers not to continue to cache it.
