Tucson accidents
The hits keep on coming. And sadly. I posted about a poor graduate student who died as a pedestrian in traffic. Now today, as I drove on another busy street I saw someone slumped on an airbag in a car, and a badly damaged, relatively-new SUV, indicating a major collision. The paramedics were there this time.

There's something wrong about the American Southwest. I read in the newspaper about how there's a UofA prof, no less, arguing that the Southwest region is simply "not sustainable" because droughts, extreme heat, and a lack of water, all due to global warming will prevent people from living in places like Tucson. Well, he added, the straw that will break the camel's back is $400 a barrel oil. No AC.

My friend Tim has been noting regional peculiarities about the Deep South. Indeed, it's better to live where a majority of people realize collective happiness depends on just a little collective sacrifice. We had a certain era from 1945 to 1970, where a majority middle class was created, and now since 1980, we've been undoing that work, creating a parallel nightmare landscape where torture is good and "my" tax money should pay for my kid's private school.

That's a separate matter, tho. Funny, people don't die of getting hit by cars in Iowa, except when teenagers drink and drive.
No profanes - sacred
