The Alibi of Tyrants

For BASTILLE DAY:

The welfare of the people has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

      Thanks! It’s a river in the northern part of my state, Michigan. Coincidentally, the rocks beneath the waterfall are from the same geologic era as the mountains in your beautiful pics of the Canadian Rockies. 🙂

      Thanks. I live in the southern part of Michigan, near Detroit, and the geography is pretty flat. But, in the northern part of the state the geology is quite different and the terrain is more rugged and uneven. So, the rivers are faster flowing–like this one.
