I got back from a nice night of camping yesterday to find an envelope from the New Hampshire Department Of Motor Vehicles waiting for me in my mailbox. Finally, my replacement driver’s license is in my wallet. I lost my license a little while ago, and instead of going up to the New York DMV, I sent 10 dollars in the mail to New Hampshire (my folks live in Portsmouth, NH) for a replacement. It was a pain in the ass carrying around my passport everywhere I went. Literally.
Point of the story is that an artist has proposed to replicate the New Hampshire symbol, The Old Man Of The Mountain, with a glass structure that people would be able to walk into. The Old Man crumbled to the ground in May of 2003, but it still adorns just about everything in The Granite State. Seems like a really really bad idea. Let the Old Man rest in peace.
