an apology to the state of north dakota

Dear North Dakota,

I sincerely apologize for questioning why anyone in their right mind would live here. I apologize for simply questioning your existence until I had placed my own two chaco-tanned feet on your soil. But most of all I apologize for saying you're not pretty. You prove me wrong every morning I drive to work & get to watch your glorious sunrise.

You done did good, ND. Now let's work on getting some mountains up in this joint.
