  •  I like your clear thinking. And your wide (0+ / 0-)

    experience.

    With your solid body of work here at Daily Kos,
    you're one of the best journalists I've ever read,
    and I had a subscription to Newsweek
    as a teenager,
    in the sixties and early seventies.

    Magazine and newspaper articles are my source
    of self education,
    and yours,
    here,
    are among the best I've ever read.

    And you're one of the best philosophers I've ever heard of.

    Your sig line
    is better than most things any philosopher
    has ever said.

    My only frustration
    is that I can see,
    just like the Rain Man said,
    "I see it",
    I can see
    that contraception,
    voluntary,
    widespread,
    one child for each five families,
    for two generations,
    that kind of contraception,
    surgical sterilization,
    that is the most urgent task,
    the only way
    to turn this disaster around.

    The very wealthy
    will buy fancy organic farms and ranches,
    enough to feed them and their private jet mechanics
    and other needed people,
    and they will let the working class starve and die.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    Global climate change
    makes it all worse,
    but fewer humans
    on the planet
    would make everything
    so much easier to fix.

    Thanks for reading.

      And I really, really don't appreciate the space you take up with your comments. It's almost as bad as using all caps. Makes them harder to read and understand, in addition to more time consuming.

      Your comments are worthwhile additions, please reconsider the spacing.
