I like that sign that says "I made love in this fridge last night."

Cities like New Orleans could become the rule rather than the exception, 
based on some climate change scenarios, or time bombs like La Palma:

We're on a slider-bar between the Unthinkable and the Unimaginable.

People with big checkbooks are starting to complain at me that it's
time to shut up on the WELL and get back to work.

And you know what?  They're right.

Hasta la vista, as the Governor of California said before he fell off
his unlicensed motorcycle and had to have his busted mouth stitched up.

I don't want to end this thing on a note of uncharitable
schadenfreude, but, you know, life is full of justice and poetry, if
you can make time to look.

Perhaps a haiku
is the perfect way to end
this state of world rant.
