That felt good. That satisfied a need.

HI-LARIOUS Wall Street Journal article on the exact subject Fish, White Trash Republic, and moi are talking about. The best part, speaking of Al Gore and Inconvenient Truth:

In a million years, the time it takes the earth to sneeze, the planet will likely be shorn of any conspicuous sign we were ever here, let alone careless with our CO2, dioxins, etc. Talk about an inconvenient truth.

How much more securing, in a way, to believe we are ruining the planet than the planet just does not care about us, and will run rampant with life long after we are dust. And how pleasant to be able to transmute our fury over our fate into incoherent feelings of self-heroism against our present "enemies." Thus Washington Post columnist, and future dust, Sebastian Mallaby: "By their contempt for expert opinion on everything from Iraqi reconstruction to the cost of their tax cuts, Republicans have turned [Al Gore] into a hero. By their serial dishonesty, Republicans have created a market for 'An Inconvenient Truth.' "

That felt good, didn't it? That satisfied a need.

It won't take a million years for me personally. I'll be 67 this month so another fifty or sixty years (grin) I'll probably be dead and gone. Of course there will be the kids, grandkids, etc., but my generation has to steward things while we're alive and kickin', and it will be up to them to continue doing that.

We as humans have two possible scenerios in the long run. Stick around here and be a minor post-script in the history of the universe, or go into space and be in a million star systems when the Earth falls into the sun for it's last gasp.

Short of reincarnation I won't be around for either.

Oh yeah...they're just busting the doors down, demanding More Al.
So, now we're evil because we dare to question things that 'expert opinions' might say? Since when is that dishonest?

Oh, how double-plus bad of me for asking!
