Many talented writers contribute interesting letters to the editor and I read them all, but my favorites come from Bob Watson. Bob can pack more gloom and doom into a column inch of newsprint than anyone. He is a master at attacking winners and supporting losers in a most interesting way.
We now have seven billion folks stumbling around on the world's landmass with little clue about what the future holds. Wendell Berry is right. Most of us are blind and deaf to our province.
So what can we do as we wait for the world to fall apart? Love our spouse, hug our kids, shop local, support our schools, pull some garlic mustard in our public parks, pay our medical bills if we can, prepay our funeral expenses, avoid organic food and wait for the end to come. If things are as bad as Bob implies, it won't be long.
