No road trip this summer

Ramak Fazel – Storefront for Art and Architecture – Art – New York Times:

Shaving was one of the last things on Mr. Fazel’s mind when, on Aug. 7, 2006, he set out on a photographic and philatelic odyssey from his mother’s home in Fort Wayne, Ind. His mission was to photograph each of the nation’s 50 state capitol buildings and dispatch a postcard from each city, using postage stamps from a childhood collection. Each postcard would be mailed to the next state on his journey, where he would pick it up, continuing until he had gone full circle back to Indiana.

This story is pretty amazingly terrifying. And Fazel is amazingly cool about it, even though a bunch of his tormentors really ought to be in jail.
