Hello Judge Alito, Goodbye Mother Earth

A sad day for water, air, earth, and the biosphere's most endangered beings.

The Lorax said, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not."

Back into my Lerkim beneath the smog-smuggered skies. Apparently everyone cares more about their fucking SUVs than the air they breathe.

Pardon my pessimism, but this is a dark, dark day.

Hey Prof,

Don't let the dark side get you down.That is what they want.
My being thrives at places like yours, Jeff's RI and others. Indeed, that is why I started posting, to help get the word out.Like you,I believe the truth is out there,we only have to do a little work-and kindle our faith- to find it.
*But* Remember, we have the capacity to change things, and act differently, because we choose to.

May I suggest a remedy?
Take in a little humor. Parody maybe.

is another.

It's funny how laughing can change a person's perspective.

Hey Profpan,

"I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues"


"If you dream alone, it's just a dream. If you dream together, that's reality"

Let's keep speaking for the trees and dreaming together my friend.

Aj, thanks for posting the cool links!

Right on Burnsie!
Look forward to seeing you over at Rex's- having fun between the spells of darkness.

Hope you join us sometime too, Professor...

AJ, didn't know you were friends with Burnsie. Small world...

I do a pretty decent job keeping my mind from straying too deeply into the dark corridors and getting lost. Humor is, as you've noted, a crucial part of staying mentally and emotionally intact in the face of the tsunami of horrors.

I remain an optimist, in the long run. A cautious optimist.
