It is incredible and immensely exaspirating. I'm wondering if the person I was referring to is wondering how thick headed I am believing so much of what I read. Though with this climate change situation at this point it seems like being hit in the face with a pie. How can you ignore it?!

You know what they say, "A rising tide floats all boats." I guess we're all going to have to have boats. Thanks David.

That is what I call good KARMA (well for those of us who care about climate change and BAD Karma for HIM). GREAT limerick.

Thanks Andrea. I've got a doubter in my house visiting for the holiday. He and this contest coincided to form the perfect storm of inspiration. He's a really smart guy!..... go figure....
