    a portent of things to come with climate change being "off topic" for the election claptrap. We'll all be eating some dirt or swallowing water or joining a diaspora or going hungry or some grim damned thing before long, since thumbs are being twiddled and the catastrophic is being ignored.
    There's little chance we'll be jumping on climate change with anything akin to preemption. It's too late for that. (Apparently there is a fiscal cliff boogeyman that's been pulled out from a bag of tricks that is keeping everybody diverted from all that might be done to lessen the impact of the inevitable.)
    Interesting how all of those libertarian-y midwesterners became fans of federal assistance when they found themselves (much like the millions out of work now) at the short end of nature's stick and greedy suitcase farmers. My mother's people were victims of it. It changed them for good. They became lifelong Dems.
