Through his travels, words and music, Orange County-based activist-folkie Joe Racano battles every day for something so seemingly simple--a way of life that is sensitive to all living creatures and their natural surroundings.

It is an unlovely parcel of land, only seven-tenths of an acre of salty water and pickleweed. But the big man with the big blue sign says saving it--from bulldozers, from future townhomes, from cigarette butts--is the reason he was put on this Earth. Joe Racano means it. For 10 days now, he's parked his RV across the street from the Huntington Beach parcel and stands there, holding a sign that reads "Save This Wetland."

Trial by Ink! Absurd! Lynching by Headline--absolutely unnecessary. ("Scores of Garofalo's Votes Favored Business' Advertisers," June 25). One would expect the infamous Poison Pen from a substantially lesser newspaper. I have given no less than 10 news interviews.
