Now I know I am obsessing about this, and have posted it over at Lose the Noose as well. But see, this is what is going on next to my house. The builders clear cut the whole damn lot, and are busy working on a McMansion that will need to be landscaped to replace the trees that were ripped out.
Is it necessary to turn nature into a contrived patch of fertilized turf, surrounding a vinyl monolith?
As you honor the fallen this Veteran's Day, take pause and consider the path that brought us to Iraq. Our lifestyles are based on oil dependency, and our cities and towns are planned accordingly. Consider our greed, and our attitude about resources. Consider if the "American Dream" needs a reality check.
