"The most alarming sign of the state of our society now is that our leaders have the courage to sacrifice the lives of young people in war but have not the courage to tell us that we must be less greedy and wasteful." -Wendell Barry (spoken a while back, probably)
this came from a childrens' book, which looks pretty cool, especially the drawings. good ideas too. well at least our leaders are starting to talk about wastefulness these days.
