Kör / Blind

"We're the most alone while in a crowd. We're bloated the most when there isn't room for yet a toothpick on a table. Our most elder comes into being after oppressing our youngest. And when our youngest is ready to give up a limb, they grow! The safest place are those arms. Insecurity is the name given to love even when love is still present. The one with the most patience will pull teeth, wheras the least patient will drum fingers on a table. While our most faithful will shy to gaze into a mirror, the one yelling "We don't exist" will catch them in the air. Our blind see. The unblind don't even look. While our masters free our binds, those killed for freedom will spit on the graves of those who died for freedom. While the bravest don their armor, our most cowardly will hiding behind a lanky tree. We run to those who scream the loudest. Perhaps it's the silent ones who are suffering more, we cannot know. We hear the most in pure silence. The deafest is the one who talks the most. Those content with less always have a store under the pillow. One who puts palms into another palm will bleed. Widths to heights, heights to widths... The ones with sight are blind, and while our blind are laughing, I get very bored..."

America's Dead Sea

"Deep in the desert of southern California sits one of the worst environmental sites in America—a former tourist destination that has turned into a toxic soup: the Salton Sea.

The sea was born by accident 100 years ago, when the Colorado River breached an irrigation canal; for the next two years the entire volume of the river flowed into the Salton Sink, one of the lowest places on Earth. The new lake became a major tourist attraction, with resort towns springing up along its shores. Yet with no outflow, and with agricultural runoff serving as its only inflow, the sea’s waters grew increasingly toxic. Farm chemicals and ever-increasing salinity caused massive fish and bird die-offs. Use of the sea for recreational activities plummeted, and by the 1980s its tourist towns were all but abandoned.

The skeletons of these structures are still there; ghost towns encrusted in salt. California officials acknowledge that if billions of dollars are not spent to save it, the sea could shrink another 60 percent in the next 20 years, exposing soil contaminated with arsenic and other cancerous chemicals to strong winds. Should that dust become airborne, it would blow across much of southern California, creating an environmental calamity."
