Corn and light in New Mexico.

Back in Albuquerque for a conference.  On a panel today with my good friend Douglas Haynes from U of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.  He will be talking about corn, and I will be talking about light pollution. You wouldn't immediately put the two together, but when you think about it, we have replaced the natural order of things with these two bland monocultures of corn and light.  And not that corn and light are without value--of course not--but when that's essentially all we have for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles, something's out of balance.  So we'll be making those connections this morning.  

And then, we'll get started eating green chile.
