John William Tuohy lives in Washington DC

Great writing

“The yard consisted of grass and a Russian Olive tree, which was about the only kind of tree able to survive on the high prairies. Its thin, grey leaves made it look as though it were on the verge of dying, thereby fooling the elements and the bad weather into thinking that they didn't have to bother with something so spindly and bent, something so obviously on its last legs.”

― Thomas King, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America
