(EurekAlert)   Bright side to all this so-called 'global warming' - melting glaciers could give us 1,000s of kilometers of new Pacific salmon habitat by 2100. The price of lox could plummet. So there's that   ( divider line

They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes.
