RE: Our envirnomnet
I think actually being able to drink the water and breathe the air is a big tip off. Y'all come to Houston, pour yourselves a glass of benzene, take a good gulp of fresh sodium diphosphate, and we'll talk about it as we swim in the oil-slicked waters off of Galveston Beach. We can have a picnic at the local Superfund Toxic Waste Dump while we are at it - now that Bush has cut the funding no one guards the dioxin pits anymore, so anyone can get in. Bring the kids!
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
