Celebrating fish in the northwest

Don't let the dead sturgeon fool you, we revere our fish here in the northwest. In fact, some might say we regard them too highly. Ray Troll asks: Fish worship, is it wrong?

Regardless, here's a freeway overpass in The Dalles, Oregon, with a truly beautiful salmon and sturgeon sculpture doing double duty as a fence to make sure people don't drop bricks on passing cars.

I took this picture the same day I took the picture of the sturgeon in the previous post. Can we harness this sentiment and solve our problems? I sure hope so.

I guess you can tell that I'm back from vacation and ready to inflict more blogging on anyone daft enough to read this stuff.
