Where the wild things are

Cool little story in the New York Times this morning on a mapping project to show where the truly wild places are now. It comes with a popup map of the continental U.S. showing the few places left here.
The work was compiled by the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Center for International Earth Science Information at Columbia. Their websites have similar maps for the entire world. As you might guess, the truly wild places tend to be a little on the hot or cold side. Think Canada, Siberia and the Sahara.
In the U.S., four of the most "untouched by human hands" areas are....
-The Jarbridge Wilderness of Nevada
-The Central Idaho Wilderness
-The Endless Mountains and Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania (yes, Pennsylvania)
-and, the Texas Grasslands along the Gulf Coast.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
