    that's really saying something.

    exception: analogy subprocess error #09: analogy too deeply nested, analogy will be aborted so please vote for me, because these larger than average pancakes are quite impressive.

      When I was a kid we'd go to Butte and stand in the viewing area above the open pit mine, which was said to be a mile wide and a mile deep. When they closed mining operations, they shut off the water pumps. Now the pit is a mile wide, mile deep toxic lake.

      The worst tragey, IMO, was when Anaconda destroyed Columbia Gardens, the park they had donated to "the children of Butte in perpetuity." All gone, swallowed up by the Pit.
