I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend. (J.R.R.Tolkien, The Two Towers)

When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

Getting rid of the evidence AKA What's the price of copper today?

What you're looking at is the insulation that has been cut off of copper wire that most likely was stolen from some job site. With the price of copper at around $3.50/pound it's a hot item for thieves. I came across this while riding my motorcycle on some back trails. On up the road about 1/4 of a mile I came across another site shown below.

At this site they took the easy way out and burned the insulation off. This was probably done at night to hide the black smoke.
