This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Industrial parks are odd little areas, usually tucked away behind shopping malls or in between and under highways. They take up otherwise undesirable space. The buildings are utilitarian. Nothing fancy here. Square blocks with loading docks. The occasional tinted glass doors. There's really no reason to be there unless you work there.

When I was in high school I was a skateboarder. Me and a few other guys would wander around the area near 51st and Sheridan and look for interesting places to ride; slanted walls, steps with rails, railroad ties or parking blocks. Some of the best areas were always the industrial parks. They were usually empty on the weekends and had plenty of unusual concrete structures and debris laying about. Cops don't spend much time patrolling empty buildings so you could get a few hours of uninterrupted fun in before it was time to move on.

Small businesses like those housed in those square buildings are what many consider the epitome of American economic freedom. You're your own boss, you paint cars, or design buildings... you sell lights and fixtures or ship custom built home safes all over the country. You might have to work long hours but you reap the rewards and you are in control, or you can at least hold onto that illusion of control. In reality, we live in an interconnected world and you're never completely in control of your own destiny.

Even if you are hidden away off the main streets.
