Why Howard Laughed
Question: Will anyone read an architecture / cycling / global warming / peak oil / housing bubble bursting blog? Answer: Don't care, therapy is therapy. Looks like it's gonna be a long hard slog, uphill, into the gale, with rusty gears and a bad attitude.

Deeply Flawed Tourist Trap as Metaphor
Four Corners is in the wrong spot!
The spot where four states -- Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah -- come together is actually 2.5 miles to the east!
For some reason, I find this news deeply disturbing. Someone 141 years ago said, "this is the spot," everyone believed him, they built a tourist trap, generations of Americans -- millions and millions of us -- visited and did the sprawled eagle pose, and ONLY NOW did we find out the whole thing was a sham based on extreme incompetence.
Could it be?... The perfect metaphor for America?!
Now you understand how disturbing I find this news to be.
Update: The Supreme Court says, "Never mind." So does Deadhead in comments. We can all rest easy. Now about that metaphor...
