I’m not a fan nuclear power. While it happens to be one of the cheapest fuel that is known to man, its also the most deadly. Years ago I made my first map of a U.S. nuclear reactor, Enrico Fermi Nuclear Reactor Quilt, and then followed it up with “Terra Fermi,” an interactive Google Earth Globe, to highlight this intrinsic danger. Given the ease in which the imagery of nuclear power plants can be obtained, I intend to make more maps of nuclear reactors to highlight their fragile existence.
Someday, when I have more free time, I will post the full text of Hannis Taylor’s letter to Senator Thomas Carter. In the meantime, you can download the PDF of this document and read that he believes the retrocession of Alexandria in 1846/1847 was not constitutional. I originally discovered this letter in December of 2009 when I posted a newspaper article titled “Does Virginia Own Alexandria County?” which was published in The Washington Herald the following day, January 18, 1910.
I had a great time skiing with friends at Snow Shoe Mountain Resort! This photo above was taken from my friend’s balcony looking west from Cheat Mountain (4,848 ft), which is the second highest mountain in West Virginia.
We were heading out to Snow Shoe Mountain Ski Resort and decided to stop at a Wally-World. It had been years since I had been in Wal-Mart and I hope it is years before I go back. I found it rather funny that they had bullets for sale but we couldn’t find any guns.
Although planes cannot fly directly over DC, those planes that fly around DC still have their exhaust lines float over the city. I took this photograph because I thought it was interesting the way the lines cut up the sky.

Basically Congressman says that other Congressmen experiment on the citizens of the District of Columbia because they cannot do the same types of experiments on their own constituents.
Thank you Congressman Serrano for speaking up for the 600,000 American citizens of the District of Columbia.
