The mice population dwindling. Hmmmm. Nope, still too worried about the human population. Cute little buggers though. And the lower population means the predators will need to find other foods. Vicious cycle that eventually can't be good for us. So maybe we should throw a few bucks to the researchers and conservationists. Couldn't hurt, seeing as we paid 1.1 Billion dollars over the past seven years to dead farmers. What am I talking about ? Ask the US Department Of Agriculture. Apparently in our still archaic effort to subsidize farms so they don't produce any food, the guys at US Ag forgot that eventually humans die. They just kept handing our tax money to these coops who for some reason didn't think it was a crime to collect checks made out to somebody else. Can't really blame them if we started this out by paying food growers not to grow food. It would be like paying me not to catch criminals. Wouldn't work for me so why are we doing it for the Aggies ?http://www.yorkdispatch.com/business/ci_6451076
In other news, the clueless masses are starting realize that 1) the Internet can be a dangerous place 2) bad people also have Internet connections (MYSPACE FOUND 29,000 registered sex offenders among its ranks recently) 3) DO YOU THINK WE MAY NEED TO TEACH OUR KIDS SOME COMMON-FUCKING-SENSE BEFORE THEY GET TO COLLEGE !
I mean good God people, as much as we live in a more enlightened society than our fathers there are still criminals out there who would like to take our loved ones away from us. I can't catch them all, none of us can. We have jurisdictional limits that don't allow me to go catch a perv in California, for good reason. But even President Bush recognizes the problem and is taking steps. He passed the House Bill that lets me carry a weapon in any state. Even in the Ivory Tower Bush understands that society, as we grow more trusting with the lowering of crime statistics, is raising a generations that adds a new dimension to naivete. And its up to us old farts to protect them. http://www.cbs8.com/story.php?id=97675 Donna Jou is missing because a predator snared her off the Internet. Its been long enough. I have no illusions that she is either dead or close to it. Finding her is up to the West Coast people and the Feds. Figuring out why this happened is up to the rest of us. Its not going to be that big of a stretch. I see it all the time. The other night I came across a mini van blocking traffic with a flat. There were 6 kids there approximate age 18. They were stymied because NONE OF THEM COULD CHANGE A TIRE ! It took me ten minutes to drop the spare and change it. I showed the kid who owned the van what I was doing and how I was doing it. I'm sure he's still clueless. Had his father been there I would have punched him. People, if we do everything for our kids we endanger them, we raise them to be helpless. For God's sake, take a minute and watch Finding Nemo. Find wisdom where it exists. Donna Jou is missing because we forgot that.
