Orion contributing editor Ginger Strand sent this note from Duke University, where she finds the weather to be unbearably hot and where she’s researching a new book:
“Anyway, yesterday in an attempt to find some humane aspect to this godforsaken place I went to the local farmer’s market, where the chocolate
seller (best candy bar I ever ate, actually) was reading the new Orion. And then today, I did a pre-interview with the NPR show Living on Earth, and the
producer said she was a fan of Orion! So there you go, Orion has the artisan gourmands and the ecology public radio show audience wrapped up.
But you knew that, already, didn’t you?”
