Thanks to Heather Lorenz for coming to my rescue in the (2/21) EW: It's 
hard enough being misunderstood constantly because many are plugged in so 
deep to The Matrix that they are blind to their role in contributing to 
Apocalypse Now.

Unless the Book of Revelations has no validity whatsoever as a harbinger of 
the future, right about now, circa 2000 AD, WW III is due! And what a 
coincidence! Right now is when G. "Dubya" Bush is polarizing the sympathies 
of the entire planet, labeling various world powers as "evil" -- like we 
aren't?-- really tightening up on "dangerous" drugs, especially pot -- like 
pot is dangerous? Ooops, I burnt my thumb lighting that joint! I guess pot 
is dangerous.

A note on "values": More bombs. More petroleum. More timber. More 
pharmaceuticals. Is it possible that more truly is less?
