While I struggle to find the time to think of something pithy to say

Read about Chernobyl, a little over 23 years after the infamous nuclear meltdown, and the dispute between rival teams of scientists regarding its present and future. In the comments to that article, I got reminded of a website I visited a few years ago, by a woman named Elena who likes to take motorcycle rides through the areas most affected by the nuclear meltdown. The pictures she took of the remains of a Kindergarten classroom are particularly moving. The last ride of which she did one of her photo essays goes back to 2004, under the title Land of the Wolves. It makes for some fascinating reading and viewing.
