is getting on three weeks ahead, but I could be wrong.
Quince a little behind Forsythia. Digging definitely
behind last year, further back than that I cannot
remember. And if you're interested, whether you love it
or hate it a regimen of Free Trade has produced a peace
in the world that's far too easy to forget. As
well, easy to forget how easy wars are to start, what a
good idea they seem at the time, how certain victory
always is, and how incredibly hard wars are to stop.
Oh sure there are little wars all over the place,
there's hell and hatred, murder and mayhem, a bunch of
wholly headed religious nuts dreaming of the eighth or
ninth century, but all the same globalized free and fair
trading has done good for a great many of us human
beings even if it has caused havoc in the natural world.
Frankly you're a mental patient or a geriatric commerce
secretary, or someone who can't recover from losing a
job they feel entitled to, if you don't see that.
