    I hold you responsible for exporting that bias to the colonies here, where our idea of a well landscaped yard is a couple acres of newly mown, highly fertilized, and well-watered Kentucky bluegrass--even if you live in some place like Los Angeles or Las Vegas.

    Mrs. Wheeldog and I got tired of pouring water onto bluegrass in July here in the high desert a couple of years ago. We ripped it all out and xeriscaped the front yard. Installed a drip irrigation system and drought-tolerant native plants. Dropped our water bill by half and I don't have to mow it.  

    When atlatls are outlawed, only outlaws will have atlatls.
