His redacted mention in the July 24 edition of the Willamette Week, where he is celebrated for his efforts at being a good citizen, is visible to the left. Hayseed felt that some of the record needed to be corrected about his efforts at the vigil. Listen as he explains his perspective on some of the aspects of that experience.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/30/13

Air date: 
Tue, 07/30/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe tackle the proposed terminal in Vancouver that would route oil trains through Oregon.

It seems that American and Canadian oil companies are producing more crude than their exissting pipeline network can carry. The answer, in the short term, has been to ship the oil by rail. The Vancouver, Wash. port commission last week cleared the way for the construction of a massive terminal, where railroad oil from North Dakota would be loaded onto ships bound for West Coast refineries. Among other places the trains would run through Oregon.

Trains are fun and all, but sometimes they, y'know, blow up.
