OK, waaayy too many posts for one day, but it’s one of those days when everything is happening.
I’ve just got to recommend this article:
It reads tight and clean, end to end. Has “grit” along with truth and humor. Just delicious.
I’ll quote a couple of lines, but not much as I don’t want to break the ‘flow’ of the actual article when you read it… and a bit out of order, too:
The environmentalists and the activists have had a tin ear and a surplus of righteousness from the beginning. But there’s something extravagantly out of key, even for them, in holding their great “Save the Planet” revival at Cancun — up to now famous for Spring Break and as a hangout for louche Hollywood types and cleavage researchers.
They’re toasting their pasty, righteous, caterwauling epidermi on the golden hot sands of Cancun, Mexico, flopped out amid the bikinis and barbeques while they attempt to spell out a future of rationing and want for all the rest of us. Flown there on taxpayer or foundation money, meeting up with all their buddies from the bust that was Cophenhagen, the grim, grey priesthood of “sustainable” living are convening in one of the great sybaritic strips of the entire Western world. The monks are in the cathouse.
But hey, if you’re going to do Armageddon — do it in Cancun. The Apocalypse at the All You Can Eat Buffet. Parasailing to Armageddon.
Cleavage Researchers? Monks are in the Cathouse? Yes, it’s that good!
