The Most Dangerous Road in World -most-dangerous-road-in-world
North Yungas Road is hands-down the most dangerous in the
world for motorists. This one clearly endangers your life. It runs in
the Bolivian Andes, 70 km from La Paz to Coroico, and plunges down
almost 3,600 meters in an orgy of extremely narrow hairpin curves and
800-meter abyss near-misses. A fatal accident happens there every couple
of weeks, 100--200 people perish there every year. In 1995 the
Inter-American Development Bank named the La Paz-to-Coroico route 'the
world's most dangerous road'

  Doggy Reading

A poem by William Stafford, "Choosing a Dog":

        "It's love," they say. You touch
        the right one and a whole half of the universe
        wakes up, a new half.

        Some people never find
        that half, or they neglect it or trade it
        for money or success and it dies.

        The faces of big dogs tell, over the years,
        that size is a burden: you enjoy it for awhile
        but then maintenance gets to you.

        When I get old I think I'll keep, not a little
        dog, but a serious dog,
        for the casual, drop-in criminal --

        My kind of dog, unimpressed by
        dress or manner, just knowing
        what's really there by the smell.

        Your good dogs, some things that they hear
        they don't really want you to know --
        it's too grim or ethereal.

        And sometimes when they look in the fire
        they see time going on and someone alone,
        but they don't say anything.

  Quotes of the Week

Every man, wherever he goes, is encompassed by a cloud of comforting
convictions, which move with him like flies on a summer day. -- Russell,
"Dreams and Facts," in *Sceptical Essays*

The only real power comes out of a long rifle. -- Stalin [Cf. Mao:
"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun"]

Every man who knows to the minutest details all the complexity of the
conditions surrounding him, cannot help imagining that the complexity of
these conditions, and the difficulty of making them clear, is something
exceptional and personal, peculiar to himself, and never supposes that
others are surrounded by just as complicated an array of personal
affairs as he is. -- Tolstoy
