Bruce Springsteen is not of the Woodstock era, but he cut his teeth as a … More Bruce Springsteen: Falling Out of Favor?
Unimaginable beauty in the sunrise Celestial high tech If only you knew the secret A grand finale on deck — No worries about being late The smoldering evening sky Life has no more tomorrows Time is in short supply — The earth is no longer flat It curled up and resigned So much unfinished business … More If There is No Tomorrow
Space travelers who do a flyby of Earth do not admire our junk. One more reason to avoid this rock. The heavens are filled with man-made stuff, debris from space flights, satellites and our presence. Where we go, waste follows. The U.S. Space Command is charged with tracking space junk. Besides monitoring these objects in … More Space Junk

I used to think I knew what this country stood for, but now I’m confused. We are a nation of morals and kindness, and a nation of … More Things I Don’t Understand: The Environment
