Five O'Clock Rocks
Today's LA Times was the first I'd heard of rocks being mailed back to Uluru, or The Australian Outback Monolith Formerly Known As Ayers Rock. (However, international news seems to have picked up on this a month ago.)
Souvenir chunks of the sacred Aboriginal site are now being sent back by tourists haunted by guilt or a perceived streak of bad luck. Newly respectful -- or fearful of the Aboriginal bogeyman* -- foreign filchers are forfeiting their forbidden formations.
So. Anybody got Donald Rumsfeld's email address? I've got an article I'd like to forward him... well, two, actually.
Today's FOCR: "Rock of Ages," Def Leppard, Pyromania
* Abobogeynal? Bogeymanimal?
