Denver is a bit of a choke point.

They chose the Dalton Highway in Alaska as the best, but be warned that road is no casual Sunday drive, it goes to the North Slope oil fields.
It's really misleading to show 360 in Nevada using the US route symbol when in fact it is a state route. I've been on that road before - lost a tire due to a rock in the road.

It's clearly labeled a State Route, as are most of the roads on the map.

That's pretty funny. I wonder if previous elections have had the same phenomenon. No matter what, half the country is always unhappy with the result...

Yep.

We're afraid of the stuff we mostly can't control. Cancer, terrorists, murder, etc.

We know how to prevent heart disease, but it's no fun to eat a dry salad for every meal.

On Friday nightís supper tray there was a note that they were withholding Romaine lettuce because of a federal recall, so salad isnít always safe either.

Cancer does take a broader age spectrum, though--very few heart attacks happen in your 30s, but we all know people who have gotten cancer in their 30s. It's scarier to think about dying young.

Similar signs here, but, salmonella doesn't kill you.
