Of Anthropogenic Gasbags and Life on Earth

Yes, I'm on hiatus, spending hard family time in Washington D.C., where yesterday we had some of the most amazing weather I think I've ever seen. And that from someone who has lived a long portion of her life in Texas, home of a lot of extreme weather. But man, the storms that crashed through here last night, seems like they would have made a believer in climate change out of almost everyone. Except of course, Senator Inhofe of Oklahoma. Neil is doing a great job of blogging about the climate change bill now on the Senate floor, but this little NYT item caught my eye this morning, and with a few spare moments to spend on the computer, I couldn't help but draw your attention, gentle reader, to our government in action.

The tree that fell on my sister's car last night was not intended for her. It was meant to crush some of our lawmakers as they bumbled home to drink bourbon and pass anthropogenic gases. What a bunch of clowns we have making decisions about the future of our planet, ourchildren. More Talking Than Listening in the Senate Debate About Climate Change

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
