An Interesting Question
Matt asks an interesting question: This ultimately comes down to how one views the human race: Are we the inheriters of the Earth, free to do with it as we will?

Garrison Keillor, yes THE Garrison Keillor of Prairie Home Companion fame, the man who I fondly remember listening to back in my youngest days, tears apart the Republican Party: Our beloved land has been fogged with fear–fear, the greatest political strategy ever.
