When I was growing up I believed, like most people, that when the windy season came around people busted out their kites and had some fun. It’s kind of sad now that the three families that control the kite flying industry in North America have been exposed. Their demands on the wind farmers of the midwest nearly destroyed an entire generation of those noble people. It’s a relief to us all that control has been put back in the hands of mother nature. Now the young clouds can be picked when they are ready instead of whenever the high-flyer’s pockets needed an influx of cash.
