Graffiti in the national parks isnt art: its a narcissistic crime against us all | Rebecca Sowards-Emmerd 27.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The creepytings vandal might as well have painted on the front door of my house or, really, on everyones front doors Yosemite National Park is a sacred place for me: it is where I fell in love with the outdoors. Its towering granite walls, high meadows, deep canyons and sharp mountain summits drew me into nature in a way I had never experienced. My story isnt unique. Famous conservationists and artists such as John Muir and Ansel Adams were deeply inspired by this land. My love story can be told by so many other people about so many other special locations in our country the expansive spaces of Death Valley, the deep blue colors of Crater Lake, the dark narrow canyons of Zion.

The late giant of the Australian left failed to do his constitutional homework. MPs in Britain should learn the lesson, and start swatting up on the smallprint of statutes such as the Fixed-term Parliaments Act The pantheon of the British left lacks anyone quite like Gough Whitlam , the former Australian prime minister who died this week. From healthcare to national parks and Aboriginal rights, his 1972-75 administration represents a burst of legislative creativity , which bears comparison with Clement Attlees glory years in the 1940s. But whereas Attlee was brusque and businesslike, Whitlam stirred the progressive soul. In his heyday historian Manning Clark wrote he proceeded with a wild ecstasy and relish, bringing Jackson Pollocks Blue Poles to Canberra, and making moving appeals to the intelligence and idealism of the Australian people. The abiding lesson of Whitlam for radicals is, however, not to be found in the poetry of his heyday, but in the dramatic prose of his decline. The mix of dearer oil ...
