  1. Dear Mr. Hughes – I just scanned your photo blog “pipeline at my mailbox.” Truly an act of love. I will give it a more detailed look in the coming weeks. Here in Baltimore we are dealing with our gas utility, BGE, which is building the Granite Pipeline – through the biggest park in our city. We have opened a suit against the City and BGE to obtain fair compensation for the forested parkland we have lost. Phase 3 of the pipeline will begin soon. I will make an effort to do a photo essay on that as you have done. Thank you for the inspiration.
