So I learned on John Stewart last night some guy wrote a book insisting we are not confronting the long feared Malthusian population explosion disaster. Instead it appears that women the world over, even on the Dark Continents (including India there), are choosing to have fewer children (well, way to go, ladies), and as a result, by the year 2040 we will be seeing an actual decline in the world's population. This is good news for us but bad news for the water thieves and GMO seed mongers who want to control these two commodities with a fear based agenda that will have farmers and the rest of us dependent on their doling out, for a fee, the necessities of our very existence because if we don't we will die! (Shades of The Evil Emperor in Star Wars.) But their fear based agenda has holes in it that threaten to reduce their bottom line.

What a sublime day it was on the playa de nuevo hersey. 70 degrees and a smattering of fisherman, clearly in seventh heaven, their faces serene as they stare out to sea, who cares what they catch? Fishing for stripers. The sea is calm, an old work shirt blue, the skitterbirds delightedly pattering in and out of the waters edge en masse looking for lunch – all is right with the world. I meander this beach and feel part of all that surrounds me, blessed, soft, with bright pink painted nails and pockets full of gold.
Time will one day heal the wound to that
confidence that will be inflicted by today’s decision. One
thing, however, is certain. Although we may never know
with complete certainty the identity of the winner of this
year’s Presidential election, the identity of the loser is
perfectly clear. It is the Nation’s confidence in the judge
as an impartial guardian of the rule of law.

He should be on his mettle
And yet I'm torn apart
Just because I'm presumin'
That I could be kinda human
If I only had a heart"

So check this out if you haven't seen it already. It's Annie Leonard's (bless 'er) always entertaining, funny and witty latest, The Story of Bottled Water, a must see for all those who have yet to get aboard with a Kleen Kanteen or the like, eschewing the purchase of high polluting bottles of H2O made by your local petrochemical factory and filled with the same tap water you could get for free if your brain was functioning properly and responsibly.

April showers here. Nice dripdripdrip out the open window to wake up to. It's the best kind of alarm clock. Rainy days at the beach.
