the the 1930s and 40s. She danced at clubs such as The Apollo, Cotton
Club, and Zanzibar Club, with legends including Frank Sinatra, Gene
Kelly, and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.
afford my 'lifestyle' I've been forced to seek part-time employment... To help pay
the bills! As we all know, in these tight economic times, you can't really
be too choosey about a job opportunity... You take what's available when
never saw myself working at Wal-mart, but you
take what you can get on short notice.
They were so desperate that they hired me on the

choice of two positions:

I hesitated at first then decided on the second position they offered. It wasn't easy, butt I kinda
enjoyed my first day on the job...
Now I'm thinking about making it 'full

** This is wrong on multiple levels. First, that this guy can access the systems at all. Second,
that instead of saying "Oh crap, let's fix this", they fix this... by preventing the guy from
flying. And in parallel, airlines are now talking about creating a "remote control" feature
to prevent another instance where the pilot (or co-pilot) goes nuts like that German tragedy.

** VERY good on the effects of being raised by a gay couple - hadn't realized there was some research on it. But
I think that there's something missing. Look at Europe. When you redefine marriage to mean "anything", it becomes
meaningless. People don't marry. People don't have kids. And who inherits the earth? Those who reproduce.
1. Harvard biologist George Wald
estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless
immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this
nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,”
wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner in the Earth Day
issue of the scholarly journal Environment.
The day after the first Earth Day, the New York Times editorial page
warned, “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely
to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration
and possible extinction.”
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small
increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared
in the April 1970 Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at
least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during
the next ten years.”
5. “Most of the
people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of
man have already been born,” wrote Paul Ehrlich in a 1969 essay titled
“Eco-Catastrophe! “By… some experts feel that food shortages will
have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into
famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic,
think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the
decade of the 1980s.”
