    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Salem, Oregon.
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Thanks, Seabishop. I recognized the Oregon State Capitol in the background. It has a unique shape (and is probably the ugliest state capitol building in the Union). Otherwise, it's interesting to see that Salem, a decently large city, has few buildings of any real height--I think the tallest building is like 10 stories or so, and only a few are more than 4 or 5 stories. Does Salem have a Madison-like regulation that prevents buildings from being taller than the Capitol?
