    more insects equals...?  

    A friend of mine once said that the trees and the insects (and in that last category she included critters like arachnids and beetles) would take back the earth if we just laid off, stepped away, and watched what happened.  That was in 1985.  

    Even back then, in full Reagan days, in full nuclear annihilation threat days, it seemed possible to imagine a resurgence.

    Now, it is seeming impossible.  And that is breaking my heart and making me feel very old.

    What a beautifully written diary, CV.  Thank you so much.
