Waist Deep In Weed













The "native grass" surrounding the Sprint campus is easily my favorite aspect of the Overland Park office complex. I sometimes wonder if Sprint employees share my enthusiasm for the thick weed. Most are probably too concerned with other matters to even notice it. Even so, Sprint staffers who relocated to Kansas might view the grass as a symbol of their move. Maybe unhappy employees consider the grass the equivalent of bars on a jail cell, while their satisfied counterparts might celebrate it as an emblem of their success.

    A little bit of a tangent, but... I had a discussion last week with a Sprint employee who had relocated from Reston, VA., with his wife and (now) 2-year-old daughter.

    He said it was a no-brainer move for him. After visiting JoCo, he said, it was clear that the community and people were much nicer, much more "family friendly" than the area Virginia they moved from.

    Evidently, Johnson County isn't as bad as everyone says.

    And best of all, they likely either "moved up" in home size or pocketed a hefty chunk of money. Also, that D.C. commute had to be a drag.

    "Prairie Grass Restoration" my ass; they can't afford to have it mowed anymore.

    Having lived on the east coast for three and a half years, I'm sure the Virginia transplant will feel right at home with the ass-hugging, tail-gating at 85 mph Johnson County gold-plated Hummer drivers.

    Anybody that far up my ass should at least have the courtesy to check for fucking polyps while they're there.

    From what I've seen the prairie grass restoration ought to be called the prairie grass monoculture or the prairie grass oligoculture and restoration ought to be in quotes. The thing bears no resemblence to a prairie.

    It is better than asphalt.
