Random thoughts about roadside art, National Parks, historic preservation, philosophy of technology, and whatever else happens to cross my mind.

CNN had an interesting report today about an elderly Japanese man who retired from his rather staid career as a travel agent, and now at the age of 73 has become quite a celebrity. I'm not sure exactly what it says about senior citizens and popular culture in general, but Japan has become quite the trend setter in recent years.
