I admit, a wee bit of schadenfreud was my first reaction to this story — it only seems fair that states full of climate change denying morons should feel the kick-in-the-ass it is going to be. I do feel sorry for some of the people IN Louisiana…until I remember, they vote the yahoos into office.
And sure, the earth ALWAYS just cracks open — it’s nada, amigos!
This still depresses the hell out of me. And yes, we can and SHOULD do better.
And I don’t know how I feel about this tale of woe. On the one hand, if the little boy is going to die of a brain tumor anyhow, is it wrong that his parents do not want him to do it in a hospital? The story really doesn’t give enough details for me to feel more than a sense of misery. And this story which says the boy was hospitalized for “rehabilitation” really confuses me; a brain tumor gets rehabilitated?
And good gods and goblins; hide the books, because can “Farenheit 451” be far behind this kind of shit? I am more and more disturbed that people act like watching a television show is somehow participatory.
