As long as I am around the world, indeed the entire Universe, shall never lack for beauty and good taste.

Ludwig von Mises: What characterizes capitalism is not the bad taste of the crowds, but the fact that these crowds, made prosperous by capitalism, became consumers of literature of course, of trashy literature. The book market is flooded by a downpour of trivial fiction for the semibarbarians. But this does not prevent great authors from creating imperishable works.

It is perhaps a GReat Woe that we can intensely inject beauty, refined thought and vast depths of cleverness into our work, and then have them stall completely at the Customs Barrier on the bridge into Shared Reality, n'est-ce pas?

So how long is Rap out of town? A week? Do you suppose the by-product crack means he won't try to find WiFi along the way to report back via his netbook?

We've read every part of it, true. But it ain't the same as coming in in the middle of some thirty-odd thousand remarks and reading them through. This takes a strange, not to say DIvine, kind of inspiration or madness, or both.

Well, Amos, not completely alone. After all, WE'VE read it, just piecemeal.

My youngest whippersnapper turns 18 today, so I am going to be cooking up a storm. I'll bring over any leftovers later. Are you lot watching the Oscars, just to see if Winona or Shatner are presenting?

Welcome, sir or madam as the case may be.

I think you may have staked a claim unmatched in the annals of the Mudcat, of having read the whole of MOAB, if you really did that!

Thank you kindly for that welcome. I believe the picture posted in my link is a face only the "MOAB" could love. As a shy newcomer I decided the best thing I could do would be to read the very longest thread. So doing, I finally felt like I could post without, well, too much fear.

Have your camera ready, Rap? Look for armadillos. Rare there, apparently, but not unheard of. Keep in mind, nonetheless,

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck
If there's duck doo on your pickup truck,
It ain't no armadillo!

I wrote this some years back just rediscovered it in an old file. I call it "Dover Beach."

The sea is calm to-night.
The tide is full, the moon lies fair
Upon the straits; on the French coast the light
Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand;
Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.
Come to the window, sweet is the night-air!
Only, from the long line of spray
Where the sea meets the moon-blanched land,
Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,
With tremulous cadence slow, and bring
The eternal note of sadness in.

Sophocles long ago
Heard it on the A gaean, and it brought
Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow
Of human misery; we
Find also in the sound a thought,
Hearing it by this distant northern sea.

The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth's shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingles of the world.

Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

"It all began with Abraham Lincoln and a promise. In the midst of history's greatest test of presidential mettle, Lincoln took time in 1861 to establish the Uintah Valley Reservation for the Ute Indians in Utah.


Before he wrote the order, however, the federal government asked Mormon leader Brigham Young if the Uintah Valley was appropriate for a reservation. Young reported that the land was so utterly useless that its only purpose was to hold the other parts of the world together. In other words, it was perfect for an Indian reservation.


Congress then passed a law that declared the new reservation was "for the permanent settlement and exclusive occupation" of the Ute Indians. In 1882 Congress authorized an addition, which created a homeland for the Utes of over 4 million acres. Finally, the Utes in Utah had a refuge from Anglo settlers."


Thus it began with Lincoln.

Moving the Shoshone around woulda been a tad difficult fer Lincoln, Amos, since the Ft. Hall Indian Reservation (for the Shoshone and Bannock tribes) was created by the Ft. Bridger Treaty of 1868. Ol' Abe had done been dead a piece by that time.

Wal, Rapaire, ya know, back before Lincoln shuffled the Shoshone, the Ute and the Uintas aound so much, there was a lot more country over which we they traveled. There are many legends about Uintas gold, and it is just possible that stage was carrying the wrongly taken results of someone messing with the Mine of Lost Souls, or some other sacred place which the Uintas did not feel should be messed with by such late-comers. And that might well be why that stagecoach carried that gold, and why, when it was robbed, and the driver and his partner left to bleach in the sun, they say there were signs of warrior's ponies in the vicinity.

No-one knows. If you say you're the one that robbed that stage, well, fair enough, I ain't gonna argue. But do not protest overmuch, as the Bard saith.
