About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Before You Buy Your Next Hummer

Read this article from today's New York times by Jared Diamond.

Think about this: Have you read about the election riots in Kenya? Tribal. The Lou think they are being hosed by the Kikuyu. What's that have to do with Diamond's article?

When the natural resources run out civilization breaks down along tribal lines.

It's coming. Too bad we aren't allowed to visit Cuba legally. They are already living
the way we may be happy to in another twenty years. It's not so bad. If you don't mind riding your ox to work.
