Back on December 27 I interviewed Doug Busbee about the situation on the South Fork of the Edisto. This was right around the time that comments from Mr. Winkles of the Farm Bureau first began appearing in the press, and it was already obvious that they had appointed themselves the opposition to our calls for the flaws in the Surface Water Withdrawal Act to be addressed and corrected. I meant to get Doug's goat with the question, but for a minute I thought I'd pushed him too far...
With the appearance of the Farm Bureau's calculated effort to mischaracterize our position by demonizing "radical environmentalists", I thought it might be a good moment to show what genuine emotion and honesty looks like.
No PR firm. No lobbying dollars. Just a man who loves the Edisto. Are YOU a "radical", Doug?
