We've all come to look for America

As Emily Dickinson wrote, there is no frigate like a book...

The silent desolation of Fourth Beach, on the Olympic Peninsula

Paraphrasing Cicero, a bus without books is like a body without a soul.

Whoever this guy is, he is angry about everything from 8 years of Bush to a child-beating plumber associated with the eery nearby community of Seabrook (founded by visitors from another planet in 2004)to State employees who pick on the disabled. And don't even get him started on those whale-eating Japanese.

This Douglas fir is 400 years old. If only trees could talk; imagine the stories it would tell.
