On this land stolen from the Shoshone people, twin evils co-exist. One represents the corruption of the human spirit, the other represents the corruption of the entire planet.

The powers that be in Nevada decided many decades ago that the legalisation of gambling and prostitution were a fair trade for co-habiting with a nuclear test site. They at least, unlike the Shoshone, were given a choice. I don’t know which depresses me more.
