    Thanks for the comment. However, it might take more energy than economical to do that at this time. Deuterium for use in nuclear power will probably be extracted with better effect in the beginning, and research will yield better options later. If only affordable fusion technology were here, many problems would be solved.
    Meanwhile, I will nominate my wife for a Nobel Prize. We could use the money to eat at restaurants.
    PBS showed a neat thing of Julia Child clips processed into a rap video. We had a good laugh at it.

    Generous amounts of carbon are in many meals my wife makes. I swear, she’d burn water. I tell her, somewhere watching, Julia Child is weeping.

    And expensive. Check out how much Chicago has paid to people allegedly made to confess to crimes through police torture under Jon Burge. The last time I read, it was estimated at about $57 million.

    At this rate, we will know soon. I keep thinking how apt was the video clip of Putin doing judo moves. Apparently he was a judo champion in his youth. It’s exactly what he’s doing with the U.S. and Europe.
    And the Green Men in Ukraine —Ninja Turtles? He also seems to be using many war principles from Sun Tzu. There’s much of Eastern philosophy in his techniques.
    This is probably what Putin has been preparing for his whole life. I think he will continue this way until he bumps up against China and its own ambitions.

    I’m not sure, but certain incidents during The Whiskey Rebellion might have been the first.

    Trump is the Class Clown of presidential candidates.
    The classless Class Clown.

    An interesting malapropism. With apologies to the old movie of the same name, it could also be “Magnificent Obsession.” I’m just Putin you on.
    We all seem to be convincing ourselves to let Ukraine go – sow the wind and reap the whirlwind? And how many refugees might other countries get in this case?

    I predict the situation in Ukraine will be the catalyst for a wider conflict with which the U.S. and its European allies must eventually deal. Unless it is now acceptable for Russia to piecemeal re-absorb its former satellites through some modern version of the Yalta Conference?

    Danziger occasionally draws cartoons with this general theme. I remember one, I think it involved Pat Robertson, in which Danziger is reading the paper and thinks in the caption (something like): “And sometimes you wake up and find they’ve done your job for you.”

    But does the Lord really answer such selfish prayers?

    Did you ever read EVOLUTION, by Stephen Baxter? He portrays the descendants of mankind as they exist on Earth 500 million years in the future, in decline from environmental disaster and the resulting collapse of civilization.
