Dear Barrette,
Thanks for your time the other night.  I got distracted with other things (running our business and raising our family) and am only now able to sit down and put ideas to paper.
The above qualifier is exactly the point.  We and everyone we know in the productive economy are so busy with our own affairs, that imposing ever more requirements on us very rapidly reaches a breaking point for our family, business and personal health.  The last thing we want to do is pend time battling the government for the right to go about our daily lives.
We raise and market natural meats, grow shellfish, and purchase and distribute wild seafood products to about four dozen stores and restaurants in San Juan County and Seattle.
