The Completing Poetry of Hoover Dam

My Sunday column in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

Hoover Dam made some men very rich and killed a few others. It diverted the natural appropriation of water, skewing the distribution toward the agribusiness concerns of California. And you and I are pretty much OK with that, unless we’re would-be monkeywrenchers, holed up with our Edward Abbey and our cubic mile of unshared air that we find necessary for proper respiration.
