Glad to see the article about you. I never read the column anymore, I
usually like most every writer in NYT because they don't let the subject
of an article go till they have explored several angles, but this column
is more of a blog, and the author does not seem to look at things
intelligently and contradicts himself. Just the name he chose for the
article gives you the idea, you know the phrase   sound bite
So thank goodness we don't go to him for our permaculture info.

I was born Michael David Anderson & when I was 12 or 13 I looked in  
the Chicago phone book & there were 12 Michael David Andersons & 325  
Michael Andersons.  I changed my name that day & started using it on  
the stories & poems I was writing.  I've used it ever since.   
Apparently I was really thinking ahead because the spelling I adopted  
for my first name turns out to be a unique search string on Google  
(until recently).


I'm a bit sad that the hour long tour of our 3 acre permaculture  
demonstration that I gave him hardly got notice in the article or the  
video.  C'est la vie.
