Even the atheists are starting to believe in hell -- and it's here on earth (like the Jews say). Lucky for me I live in Orange Countty, where everything is air-conditioned (though not OVER air-conditioned like NY office buildings -- so hairy, sweaty men can still wear their 3-piece wool suits -- idiots!) I feel sorry for people in Europe and New England who are still stuck in the old-days of the occasional two or three day heat wave. Is it a heat wave if it lasts for months? I think is's more of a heat tsunami. Katrina's going to look like the little sister of the monsters that are coming.
I don't know what it was like in the "normal" times that the adults still believe are normal and that we'll be getting back to any minute, but I can say that as long as I can remember it's HOT, VERY HOT, and it's getting worse.
whatever trees are left are going to have to start breathing a lot more heavily. So people better get over their "a man and a woman" "missionary position only" sexual prejudices and hope that some of those tree-huggers move on to heavy petting.
