North Dakota Meditations 2

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. The corporate vultures circle and we pump up the light, sweet crude. For better or worse, the masculine will prevails and the remnants of organisms from eons past come to the surface for a second life of vitalizing our airplanes, cars, and factories. 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?
