It Was Fun, It Was Pretty, What More Can You Say?

I should have something of my own to report since we went on a lovely thirty mile ride to Potter Marsh last night, but it wasn't irritating or amusing, just pretty and fun, so I'm not really the best person to write about it.
On the other hand, Exxon continues to provoke irritation, at least, up here. Although the Supreme Court after 15 years or so of litigation, cut the punitive damages from the Exxon Valdez oil spill by 90 per cent, Exxon has not begun making plans to at last pay the plaintiffs. Their reasoning is that the Supreme Court remanded the case to the 9th Circuit Court saying the damages could not be more than 10 per cent of the jury verdict. Exxon is now trying to persuade the lower court that it should be less. I think Exxon might be giving oil companies a bad name.
