    I've made this comment before about my Mexican trip, but I need to say it again.

    Seeing the kind of poverty I saw in the village made me think of Appalacha 130 years ago.  It gave me insight into the mindset of my ancestors, and it was not a bad feeling.  

    Also, with future energy reductions, it may be an insight on how my grandchildren or great grandchildren may live.  The Pope was justifiably criticized for romanticizing the "simple joys of the poor" but those simple joys do actually exist.

    When someone writes here, "I fear for the future," this is what they fear.  It's bad, but not 100 percent bad.
