We bid farewell to an old compadre
500 of us bid farewell to old compadre Gene Bluestein. Gene was a
folklore and English professor, a writer, a fighter. When SunMt was
carnated as National Land for People Gene led his singing family,
above in a rousing version of “This Land Is Our Land” for our
slide show “Discover America.” It was our exposé on how big
landowners were ripping off subsidized irrigation water meant
for small farmers. Sing with us at Gene’s memorial service.
