Superb Essay/Slide Show on Decaying Buildings in Slate!

As one who has watched man made intrusions throughout many of the wilder parts of the West decay away for decades, I was particularly interested in the considered thoughts and arguments presented in the above essay by Caitlin DeSilvey.

I also stand quite firmly - and very resolutely - on both sides of this question.

Agreed, some of what is out there should be allowed to slowly and naturally decay back into the earth from which it came. Equally agreed - much of our history needs to be saved in its present arrested decay to remind us of where we came from and who we once were.
