Lucky to be alive after being upper body slammed by a 400-pound antelope at full speed. It looked to me like both were on their own courses with "blinders" on and that the antelope saw the biker only at the last second, tried to leap over him, but couldn't clear him in time. Wow!!! What a blow!!
If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracle of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.
