Fayeroe,
You wrote,[...been pillaged..ruined..full of silt..gone..chemicals..used to kill..makes you sick..?..a changed place...].
Environmental disasters can happen over a long period of time and create {a changed place}. Not like it was when our forefathers inhabited the wilderness. First it is one strip mine, and one mountainside deforested. Then from that one event, the soil that is bare erodes, then there is flooding, then there is more erosion then there could be animals that depended on the environment to have to leave to seek other places to live crowding those anomals that are already there and so the fire is lit and spreads and is still burnning. Is it not the firsyt ax and the first shovel that strats the chain?
I have been to Oklahoma, right through where you describe. Lou's first un-smiley>[:-(]
