We went to the grand opening of the new White Tank Mountain Library/Visitor Center. Very nice. A lot of environmentally friendly features (solar, low flow water, etc.). But, par for the course for Arizonans, there's always someone that is either painfully clueless or blatantly contradictory (or both):


It's a dual-use facility serving both the library and the park itself as a visitor center. We hike at the White Tank Mountains all the time and will make use of the facility just about every time we go out there.


It's always nice to see a lot of people in a library. Gives one hope that there are actually people that read.

Speaking of reading ... I couldn't resist showing the following picture. We dropped into a used bookstore after going out to eat on Saturday and I saw this sign. Insert your own joke as I will sound snarky and disrespectful if I inject mine. But I think you know where I'm going with this (my Christian friends ... and wife ... need to forgive me):


"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." -- Mark Twain

Well, duh!

How would one differentiate this section from the "Christian" section? Just sayin' ...

We had fun here with a selection of *religious* Christmas cards in one of our supermarkets..... It made me chuckle....

Just to keep people from hunting further, I'd change to sign to read "Christian Fiction / Bibles." Or maybe "Department of Redundancy Department."
