The Reserve is being set up across the street from the Plantation, without anyone, seemingly, being aware of the significance of the naming patterns. The spirit of “don’t fence me in” is nowhere to be found on St. Simons. Indeed, it almost seems there’s a competition to see who can erect the most innovative fence. Maybe fences are solid, compared to the ocean’s liquidity.

Qualified immunity meets qualified impunity.
Much more exciting to plan and initiate a raid, perhaps especially of a barber shop by people who still retain a smidgeon of fear at having their hair cut. What if getting a hair cut turns them into wimps, not wolves?

If roach turds sparkled like diamonds, would we prize them? Is that why what the Kochs leave behind is considered great? How many coal miners coughed out their lungs so some diva can deliver her seranade on the David H. Koch Theater stage?
Name droppings. Kochroaches. Vandals just wanting to be noticed. “See, ma? No hands.” “See, pa? No guilt.” Wonder if vandalism is nothing more than an over-reaction to being ignored.

It’s a neat cycle. The only problem is that the wetlands are lost and so is their filtering and nurturing function. But, filling a wetland with water is certainly a novel innovation. Now, if new or man-made water bodies were also required to have a 25′ natural undisturbed vegetative buffer, we’d actually come out ahead. We’d have more fresh water retained on land and percolating back into our aquifers.
