    Not surprising that libertarians are concentrated in the western states.

    18 or so years ago I was a systems analyst and applied researcher in local high-speed data service for the only big telecom company that operated both fiber-coax cable systems and twisted-pair telephony systems. When the company split, I was one of the few who got to decide which way to go. Even then it was clear that the cable side’s tech was going to be more flexible, and I opted to go that way. I only follow the details loosely these days, but there’s no evidence that the situation has changed, except perhaps in rich dense suburbs.

    Didn’t realize there are coyote-wolf hybrids, but makes sense. I wonder about this one I photographed in Evanston, IL, just north of Chicago. It seemed larger than most I’ve seen. Another smaller coyote was nearby.

      Gah! Lisby chased a fox the other day, but that’s about as exciting as I’ve seen.

        The Chicago burbs were crawling with coyotes a few years ago. A lot turned up in the city, too. Weirdest case, a coyote walked into a Quiznos sandwich shop in downtown Chicago (the Loop) and climbed into a beverage fridge.

        Working in the burbs, I had a sighting or two a week, especially around a forest preserve I used to pass through. Twice I came within a few feet of running one down with my car. Last couple of years, though, I haven’t spotted any. They’re still out there, but I’ve wondered if the population has declined a bit.

    I would think that deploying more than one prospector robot to the moon would be in order.
