Whatever Happened to The (American) Heroes?
There's a song by The Stranglers called Whatever Happened to the Heroes. It basically describes how Leon Trotsky "got an ice pick that made his ears burn." The theme is "no more heroes anymore." I'm not convicted the Machiavellian Trotsy was a hero. A visio...

In Devil's Garden
You have to drive all the way through Arches National Park to get to Devil's Garden but it is far from undiscovered. The trail from the parking lot leads through a narrow defile in the rock to arches, spires and a maze of narrow rock walls called "Fins." Th...
