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

Thank you, Joe
The news has been pretty grim recently -- the never-ending war in Afghanistan, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the economy, you name it -- so I've got to thank Joe Barton (R-Big Oil) for injecting some comic relief. Just how tone deaf does a politician have to be to realize that sticking up for a multi-billion dollar oil company wouldn't be a real popular move with the American public, at least when we're seeing oil-covered pelicans every 20 seconds on television?
