news stories

News that caught my eye but I am too lazy to enlarge upon:

-- An AP story that noted a just-past weekend whose television fare "was practically nothing but football and political ads."

-- A BBC story about two Chinese men arrested for buying corpses. "They said they were trying to ensure government quotas on cremations every month were met."

-- An AP story about the possibility of bringing better Internet services to Yellowstone National Park and other places once prized for their in-your-face beauty and wonder and peace.

  1. Camping ain't what it used to be. I remember passing the camping ground at Yosemite and thinking it was a canvas Manhattan. Complete with hot showers, laundromats, a small version of Walmart.

    I remember sleeping on the ground, maybe with a pup tent, sweeping a perimeter with a tree limb, searching out rocks and sticks to start a fire, cleaning it up when done and returning home unwashed.
