Road Runner At Border Wall

Washington Post: Road Runner Stopped At Trump’s Border Wall

Okay, I’ll admit that I stopped at this article because of the title. It took me back to my childhood and Road Runner cartoons (this was back before they were sanitized, full of early 80’s casual Looney Tunes violence) where the Road Runner could never be defeated by anything Wiley Coyote could put in the Road Runner’s way.  I’m sure that was intentional. It worked. It grabbed my attention.

But the article is about a wildlife documentary photographer, and how the border wall has affected that work.  It’s worth the read.  You can find it at: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/09/13/roadrunner-photo-trump-border-wall/
