HENRY DAVID WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED, NOR PLEASED

“Walden plainly can never be spoiled by the woodchopper, for, do what you will to the shore, there will still remain this crystal well.”          –Henry David Thoreau, Journal, 1851

“If some are prosecuted for abusing children, others deserve to be prosecuted for maltreating the face of nature committed to their care.”     –Thoreau, Journal

Walden Pond in Concord, Mass, is polluted…to nobody’s surprise but to our shame.

Click here for a gallery of pictures of the pond today.

Last year was the Thoreau birthday bicentennial.  Click here to read about one modern writer’s visit on that anniversary.
