A quote from Bill McKibben, compliments of my Jamaican (VT) amigo HomeyM:

  "In the last century, we've seen change in human societies speed up to an almost unimaginable level, one that has stressed every part of our civilization. In this century, we're going to see the natural world change at the same kind of rate. That's what happens when you increase the amount of heat trapped in the atmosphere. That extra energy expresses itself in every way you can imagine: more wind, more evaporation, more rain, more melt, more... more... more...

  "Our rulers have insisted by both word and deed that the laws of physics and chemistry do not apply to us. That delusion will now start to vanish. Katrina marks Year One of our new calendar, the start of an age in which the physical world has flipped from sure and secure to volatile and unhinged. New Orleans doesn't look like the America we've lived in. But it very much resembles the planet we will inhabit the rest of our lives."

Steve, off topic:

(I sent you an e-mail a couple of days ago, but I've read of your woes there so....)

I was wondering if you had any copies of Taboo 5, 6 or 7 left, and how much would a copy of any individual copy of 5/6/7 run me if I bought it from you, as advertised at the old comicon site? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, and have a good week. Catch ya later.
