It's not often (ever?) that I write a fan letter, but I wanted to send this note to thank you for your blog, which I've been reading for several months now. Every time you share one, I discover new delights, and I am astonished at your style, which manages to be both conversational and backed by deep erudition worn lightly. This week's, where you begin with the fauna roundup and progress to a discussion of enclosure -- and the correlation of American investment in enclosure with the expropriation of land from the native inhabitants -- was particularly profound; for me it was the ideal way to begin a contemplative Thanksgiving week. Thank you. (I assume/hope the essays will be collected at some point; I will snaffle up the collection)!
