It's the Age Avalanche! (apologies to Ken Dychtwald).
Big changes are thundering down the time track. We will be the political gorilla. How do we use our muscle to the best effect? We have to be very careful and very smart.
We are the readers of Science Fiction, and now our world is sci-fi realized.
Twain v Roosevelt
I See the Kinship, Me and Mark
Mark Twain has been one of my heroes forever. Now I discover he felt about Teddy Roosevelt the way I feel about Donald Trump. Roosevelt felt the same way about Twain. (I like them both.)
They worked it out by not speaking publicly about their mutual disdain. Avoided a national embarrassment, they did.
"Acutely aware of each other's popularity, neither [Roosevelt nor Twain] publicly denounced the other. Among friends, though, both were free with their feelings. Roosevelt said he would like to 'skin Mark Twain alive.' Twain considered Roosevelt 'clearly insane' and 'the most formidable disaster that has befallen the country since the Civil War.'
Sound familiar? Especially after Trump pulled us out of the Paris Accords.
Too bad we can't contain our hostilities more like they did.

Oh, Never Mind...Just Wishful Thinking (and that's the last update) UPDATED 1:00 PM (MST) 10/15
Look at the number of times "HURRICANE PROOF" is mentioned below in the "greatness" plan for rebuilding P.R. I saw today Elon Musk and GovernorRicardo Rosselló are talking "all renewable" power sources. Puerto Ricans were already talking about it, but when Elon Musk weighs in, there is a much higher likelihood of something getting done. And it sure as heck could be built to be "HURRICANE PROOF!" Think about ELIMINATING the old-school high voltage power grid with huge towers and miles of cable, replacing them with "micro grids" that just cover small areas like cities and towns, powered by solar, wind and big storage batteries. Never mind the politics....... A HUGE plan is needed
Puerto Rico was CRUSHED by Hurricane Maria. The more we learn, the more terrible it looks. Like an atomic attach without the radiation. The Caribbean territory with o…
