Albany Bulb

    These photographs are just a few I have taken over the last ten years at The Albany Bulb, also known as the Landfill, the Waterfront and just The Bulb. It is a place I feel passionate about. That much is obvious. There are many of us who believe that this piece of the much hyped Eastshore State Park should have been left untouched and unmanaged - because it is a unique example of what happens when a place naturally and organically self regulates. But the dogma of 'preservation' and 'conservation areas' 'resource protection', 'habitats' and 'liability' overrules all individual identity. They cannot leave anything untouched, un-designed. It is as if if they (the park planners) didn't make it, it has no value. Rules, guidelines, regulations, interpretive signage, fences, safety, sanctioned art - it leaves nothing to the imagination. That is what the landfill meant to us - a place of unlimited imagination.

I thought I would pop in this morning while the bread was baking and the children were still sleeping. Although I know you think of me quite conservative, I will tell you this, anyone who thinks that the life of a Dr. means less than a life of a fetus and can so easily take away that life, will have their own little special place in hell waiting for them. (if one believes in such places, which i am not sure i do).

When I was 18 (just barely) I became pregnant and had an abortion. I didn't understand at the time how lucky I was to be in a sterile, supportive environment. Was it the best decision I could make at that moment? Yes it was. Do I think its the only best decision for everyone? No. I think if I were to counsel my daughter I would ask her to consider giving the baby up for adoption or depending on her circumstances, raising the baby herself. But I would be the first person in line to hold her hand if she chose otherwise. And I would be grateful to know that she didn't have to endure dirty, backstreet, or grusome self abortion techniques as she makes her decision to do so.

I am pro choice and pro life. I believe everyone should have the right to make their choice without paying with their lifes in order to do so.

and on a more personal note: thanks jillie. again i do so hope next time we talk there will be less tears and more enjoyment of friendship building.



Today the purveyors of the hatred are in full flight mode, full press relations, full outrage, full metal jacket 'omg, did one of us do this?' mode. Their finger just wasn't on the trigger, is all. This is a link to an Operation Rescue video about Tiller.
Yesterday I was listening in as I often do to those happy conservative talk shows and heard someone say that the 'weak-minded' in the pro life movement could possibly be pushed 'over the edge' by the kind of imagery portrayed in materials like the video.
Yup - and interestingly, abortion has less popular support than at any time over the last 25 years. They are winning the culture war on this one - which is why they are as concerned today as they are for their public image. Scott Roeder is entirely their 'product'.
