Which one is Ed?

Abbey that is. I don't know if he shaved his legs, but from the waist up these guys look a lot alike.

I was first introduced to the writings of Edward Abbey in an Environmental Policy class at BYU when Desert Solitaire was on the required reading list. I couldn't get enough and it didn't take long before I'd purchased and read pretty much all of his published works, in addition to several biographies of his life. In fact, at one point I actually entertained the idea of pursuing an advanced degree in English/Political Science with a focus on the writings of Abbey. My favorites are probably Confessions of a Barbarian, The Fools Progress and The Monkey Wrench Gang. If anybody wants to borrow a book let me know.

Adam Abbey has a nice ring to it. To complete the transformation, Adam needs to wear more plaid. Who knows, maybe Adam could make a living impersonating Ed Abbey.

I'd like to borrow "The Monkey Wrench Gang".

Ha! I don't think I have any plaid. Nor any pipe bombs.

Or, should I have just written:
