Dear Thoreau, Salutations from my outpost in the Pacific Northwest.  I can imagine you snug in your cabin at Walden Pond.  I know you’ve only received one or two letters in your life that you considered worth the postage, and I’m not sure this one will reach up to the standard you’ve set, but I

Drive down Quindaro Boulevard through Kansas City, Kansas, and you’ll see a series of dilapidated storefronts and small, single-family homes.
