Today in The New York Times, Felicity Barringer writes: LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, Nev. — A once-unthinkable day is looming on the Colorado River. Barring a sudden end to the Southwest’s 11-year drought, the distribution of the river’s dwindling bounty is likely to be reordered as early as next year because the flow of […]

Thought Crumbs

Letting you all in on a little not-so-secret. I started a blog recently, thought crumbs, that I’ve been keen on keeping on the D.L. until I got into the groove of writing it.

Anthropomorphic fruits, from their use in advertising to promote good nutrition to their use in fiction to promote good nutrition and Jesus(A), and The California Raisins, apparently had an impact on me.
