Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I could cite my environmentalism, my fear of toxic pesticides in my food, my horror at GMOs or my interest in plants and creating self sustaining ec0-systems, but I think it truly boils down to my not liking being told what to do. Control over what I eat and how I live provides the ultimate freedom. I am my own authority.
