"Idiot musings" by JSS3

Y'all, progress ain't all what it's cracked up to be. There are folks out there living in (and falling from) treetops to protest logging. There are others hugging snail darters somewhere and a few advocating relocating itsy bitsy shrimp at LAX, and NOW... there is a move to close the Virgin Gorda airport. Arrghh! We need to mount a protest, or maybe a sit-in. Something we can write-off MY taxes, anyway! We need press coverage that will be inaccurate, and T-shirts, and placards that look hand-drawn. We need Sir Dickie Branson to fly his VIRGIN hot air balloon overhead. (So, we have a little nuisance of unruly elections in Iraq, and a wave in the Indian Ocean, and some dislocated endangered ani-mules here and there. but what's REALLY important?) Break out that wallet and send me a dollar. I'll be sure to put it where it counts, and I'll keep thinking of YOU as I order another round at The Beach Bar! JEST you wait and see, JSS3.
