About Blue Canyon Productions:
A vehicle for various entertainment and media projects produced by Jim Terr. Terr is a New Mexico native who is an occasional commentator in local and national media, a singer-songwriter, video producer and author.
"In his letters and articles, Jim Terr makes too much sense. In any other country he would have long since been locked up."
- Jonathan Alter,
Senior Editor, Newsweek
"Jim Terr's spirit shows through consistently in the essays, songs and other projects he creates. It's the droll, sardonic, 'cut the B.S.' outlook that is known around the world as 'American.' His tone is especially valuable in an election year."
- James Fallows

"A gentle agitator...who's come up with a way to lower the country's political temperature."

A few old Jim Terr commentaries.
by Jim Terr
(Published in "Prime Time" seniors newspaper, March, 2000)
To me, faith in God, belief in a higher power or intelligence, is not a matter of faith at all.
Rather, it’s a matter of logic. It’s so obvious that virtually every aspect of the natural world (and I’m including in that the “spiritual” world) is so much more complex, so much more intricately designed than we will ever understand, that it seems obvious that humans and human consciousness are just a speck in a much vaster system.
Even if you consider “evolution” to be the explanation for some of life’s intricacies, the natural processes utilized by evolution are so complex and wondrous as to similarly escape anything near full human comprehension.
(continued on Opinion Page)
"A day without an update or recommendation from Jim Terr is like a day without sunshine, a night without stars, a party without guests, a pond without frogs, a dog without fleas, a deer without ticks."
-Gershon Siegel, publisher, Sun Monthly (Santa Fe)
