I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog.

A Panoply of Subjects

Still Here
Nature watches and waits.


If reading is an adventure, I have been on something of a trip these last weeks.  Subjects have run the gamut from the rise of medical consumerism to the loss of Internet privacy, and back to a rare disorder called something like Canavan disease.

Particularly interesting was the work of a futurist who around 2000 predicted the decline and fall of the American "empire."  I'll have more on this subject soon.

For now, June is busting out all over, as they say, with unusually high temperatures accompanied by cheerily warbling birds (and a desultory standing crane).

With June has come the 45th anniversary of the Watergate break-in with new and stunning revelations of a Nixon administration attempt to do physical harm to Daniel Ellsberg.

This has lead to inevitable comparisons with today's scene in Washington.  Which, actually, leads me back to the futurist, who, it seems, predicted a Trumpian figure many years ago.

It is a multifarious world, but as I am seeing more clearly, a good world at base.  I look forward to being able to present evidence for all this in the future.
