The Great White Hunter.
Walter Palmer allegedly paid a guide an estimated $55,000 to help lure Cecil onto private land, where he shot it with a bow and arrow.

I can see hungry people in WV or PA hunting deer or squirrel to live. That is the way they feed themselves but killing animals like this is not a sport, it is a crime against the planet..

Note to Trump - Google "glass houses and stones". 

Next step - Review what it says on the Statue of Liberty. #Trump

Like Sand through the Hourglass.......  I went to a sand plant open-house south of Des Moines today, on the alluvium of the Raccoon River. A bit of low-glamour, blue-collar applied geology. The kind that feeds what society needs.

Always play the Ragtime slowly. 
Mr. Doctorow’s popular, critically admired and award-winning novels, including “Ragtime,” “Billy Bathgate” and “The March,” situated fictional characters in recognizable historical contexts.

Note to Trump - and others of his ilk. Do you remember what it says on the Statue of Liberty?
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

People do have a hard time reading today. It is a republican thing.

Heritage? From the Texas state library, the official statement regarding Texas seceding from the United States, and  joining the Confederates:
  
"She was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery--the servitude of the African to the white race within her limits--a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race, and which her people intended should exist in all future time." 
DECLARATION OF CAUSES: February 2, 1861 A declaration of the causes which impel the State of Texas to secede from the Federal Union. Related Links Narrative history of Secession and Readmission | Narrative history of Annexation

"To make this function even clearer, Galka created an animated GIF, which toggles between the map of land area that we know and love and the map of residential property values that looks like irritable bowel syndrome....."
Troubling inequities are revealed when you look at the country by total property values.

Baby Karst!

Solutional openings in Devonian limestone, exposed by the overflow of a reservoir Iowa. The scoured spillway shows many of these along fractures, and bedding planes as well. They look minor, until you think about producing groundwater - yields go up X-fold when when you intersect them.

"Clints" separated by "grykes". I had never heard those terms until I went to Ireland.

A state-by-state floral arrangement, circa 1911, via +The Old Map Gallery

Stop and smell the ______   ;) 
 
A pretty map with an interesting back story. This map was going to catch the intersection of patriotism and beauty to make its creators and investors very wealthy. It fell short in the economic challenges of the early 1900's and the soon coming first World War. Still attractive and early for this style (1911) ‪#‎antiquemaps‬ ‪#‎oldmapgallery‬ ‪#‎pictorialmaps‬ ‪#‎nationalbouquet‬

We have an interesting way of choosing a president in the US......

(Note to self - at least Sen. G does have a sense of humor) ~ ~ ~ 
Someone might want to tell Lindsey Graham that's not how phone numbers work.

While I am highly unlikely to vote for a Republican, I still wish they were a bit more statesman-like. I'm cringing as we watch one village idiot after another attempt to claim that s/he is presidential material. It’s embarrassing!
