Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

L’Arena di Verona

Marty’s photo of the day #3101: A year ago this week, Deb and I were in Italy. In this photo we are standing in L’Arena di Verona, the fourth largest coliseum in Italy. It was built in the first century, and it’s actually older than the more famous coliseum in Rome.

Imagine if such coliseums were still in use for epic battles. We could all watch Donald Trump vs. Greta Thunberg. She already kicked his ass on Twitter yesterday, and she’d kick his fat ass here too. Or how about Donald Trump Jr. vs. the mother of the endangered argali sheep he killed in Mongolia? Only this time Junior wouldn’t be surrounded by five body guards or armed with a laser-sighted high-powered rifle. Yeah, he’d get his ass kicked too.
