Average JoeOhio Tour cont.: While in Bluffton, we stayed on Dan and Cindy Basinger’s farm. Dan told me he’d recently read a story about a rock singer who converted to Christianity. He was sitting in a pew during one of his first church services and leaned over to a man next to him. “When are we going to do it?” He asked. “Do what?” The man replied. “Do what Jesus did (heal the sick, help the poor, set captives free…).” The man replied again. “Oh, we don’t necessarily do that. We just mostly talk about what Jesus did.” … We did a whistle-stop event in Findlay, Ohio. Andy Black approached me and said one of his main issues was the environment. (In regard to the environment, he recommended the book Animal Vegetables and Miracle “…about the ecology of local food and the toxic logic of industrual agriculture.”) I told him that the environment was one of our main issues as well. I then told a reporter from the Findlay Courier newspaper that we had researched wind turbine projects in California and Oklahoma. What’s more, this part of Ohio (with it’s flat land and steady breezes) would be excellent for similar non-polluting, wind energy projects. I said as president, I would also push for subsidies to get farmers to “plant a row of wind turbines” on their farms.
