Hoye asks in the letter, which was posted yesterday in the State House News Service, "Why is the suffering others, so that we may live, systemic?" and writes "I am afraid for the future, I am afraid for my future children".

15 Days and Counting: 22 Days of Walking

Now would be a hell of a time for me to get writers block...

Last night saw your intrepid explorer back in Brighton on the tiny couch, this time (thankfully) no dog. The letter to the press is out, we'll see what floats out of that log jam, in the mean time? Back to work.
