Remembering American Songwriting Legend John Prine (RIP): “A True Folk Singer in the Best Folk Tradition”

“A friend called our new world ‘a ghost ship,’” wrote Nick Cave in a recent installment of his Red Hand Files blog. “She has recently lost someone dear to her and recognizes acutely the premonitory feeling of a world about to be shattered.” The experience has become distressingly common. We have all begun to lose people dear, if not near, to us—artists taken by the disease before their time like Bill Withers, whose “Lean on Me” is now more poignant than ever. Whatever else we’re faced wi...

30-50 feral hogs are now building pigloos

From the University of Saskatchewan: Wild pigs typically weigh between 120 and 250 pounds. They have around six piglets per litter, per year. They are adapted to very cold temperatures, and can breed in any season, living in pigloos burrowed into the snow.  Sexually mature within four-to-eight months, they feed on all common types of farmers’ crops, including corn, wheat and canola.
