  • Nietzsche and Desert Tortoise Fences
    The other day I noticed fences, intended to protect desert tortoises. (Or some other species. It hardly matters to the rest of this post.) The fences seemed so elaborate and expensive. Common sense asserted itself to make me think, "You've got to be kidding..."By luck I happened to be reading… ... read more
