It is the best of times and the worst of times out in the North Dakota boom. 1 part The Jungle, I part The Grapes of Wrath, 2 parts Atlas Shrugged.

Humans will be dinosaurs someday, leering out of the sides of eroded hills. How much longer before human lives are once again commodities like the oil?
