Sooner or much, much, much, much, much later.

It will be interesting to see what the new tax bill will do to charity.

Quote:
But as a result of the new tax bill, Dr. Rooney suggests, there will be roughly $21 billion less per year to charity. That’s almost four times the amount of growth in the sector last year. So, if Dr. Rooney is right, the not-for-profits that have lately had the wind at their backs may find themselves sailing into it starting in 2018.

But that may not be the whole story. Even as charitable contributions are under pressure, political contributions look poised to rise. They were already astronomical: 2016 contributions to presidential campaigns were over $2 billion; congressional (Senate and House) races brought in over $4 billion; and state-wide races, over $1,5 billion (all, new highs, and all not counting an unmeasured amount of soft/dark spending).

All hail the mighty Columbia, and pay our respects to those who have lost their lives to the Graveyard of the Pacific.

Quote:
Unlike other major rivers, the current is focused "like a fire hose" without the benefit of a river delta. Conditions can change from calm to life-threatening in as little as five minutes due to changes of direction of wind and ocean swell. Since 1792, approximately 2,000 large ships have sunk in and around the Columbia Bar, and because of the danger and the numerous shipwrecks the mouth of the Columbia River acquired a reputation worldwide as the Graveyard of the Pacific.

In the second image it's astonishing how well defined the Continental Divide is.

More on the subject here: Cellar Link.

Incidentally, a similar image depicting the UK appeared in one of our newspapers about a week ago and I can't find the damn thing!
Dwellars will not be surprised to learn that it isn't anywhere near as impressive as that of the USA.
However, we may be small but we're well made.

Yeah we've had that actual river map before, I think.

I like how some rivers don't lead to the ocean.

Great Salt Lake
Salton Sea
And that Rocky Mountain one you linked to.

I thought that river basin or drainage area map was interesting. Looking at the rivers I'm very familiar with, Merrimack, Connecticut, Hudson, Delaware, Susquehanna, and how the scenery in my head plays out along shapes in that picture.

More vaguely, memories of encounters with distant rivers like Ohio, Mississippi, Rio Grand, Yellowstone, Columbia, spur daydreams that make me wish I was goofing off at work.

I wish the river map had a bit more detail.

More detail = more bigger. See Geographical survey.
