While sustaining ourselves with free doctor's office waiting room magazines (not a People in sight), we came across the hot new hotel El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas, a cluster of restored Winnebago's and spanking new yurts. Most sustainable.

Then we followed the breadcrumbs along to the architect William McDonough, who famously said "Sustainability takes forever and that's the point" ......among other things. Which led us to a lecture by McDonough at Cornell,( and, everyone knows, if he's been to Cornell, he has surely done a TED talk)

If we were in the mood, we'd summarize McDonough's lectures, but you're not in luck, so you'll have to linger and savor. After you have spent many precious minutes sustaining yourself videoly, get ready for a real letdown

Photo note: Screen door in Brooklyn that looks like it belongs on a Winnebago. Notice the shadow vehicle and the wheel twisted in chrome.
