Fractivists are the worst hypocrites. Most hypocrites have standards they violate. A trip down the fractivist trail, though, shows only double standards.
Wine trails, antique trails and historical trails; there seems to be a trail for everything these days. A combination of websites, maps and trail signs lead us to various attractions in which we might have an interest. Most states have historical marker programs, in fact, to giver us little tidbits of why particular sites have significance. One of our readers also sent me this story about a fractivist trail marker.
