” Why the Southwest?”
” Because it’s clean.”
” How domestic.”
“I like the simplicity of the landscape. It soothes my nerves. I like the local beer. Coors. A-1”
“How plebeian.”
” I like the men and women who have lived out here long enough to acquire some of the character of the country … men of pride and independence with the look of great distances in their eyes.”
“Real estate speculators?”

-Edward Abbey, Black Sun (1971), 67.
