Progress

Several years ago, I read a comment by a fellow who was outraged about what the land developers were doing to the land in his region. He had watched the trees fall and had seen a dozen creeks and mountain streams turn to sludge. At one point, he noted that except for human carnage, there was no difference in war and progress. Both razed buildings, tore bloody wounds in the earth and displaced communities. However, if you are prompted to define progress as a kind of "bloodless war," that is incorrect. The casualties of progress are just as excessive...but they occur quietly and slowly. Fish die, birds migrate and families are displaced. The total "body count" will not be completed for decades.

  1. Gary, I agree with you. The way people describe progress here in the mountains seems anything but progress to me.
    We won't be around when the tally is done to show the damage of what "progress" has cost.

  6. The USDA and other foоd safеty exρertѕ recοmmend lеaѵing pizza out at room temperаture for no more than tωo hours.
    Whеn you aгe baking bread, you can raise the brеad dough in the cold
    οven аnd then just turn on the oven to the
    correct temperatuгe once the brеad is
    raised. I don't like pizza sauces, so I opt to use two cans of diced tomatoes as the first layer-one can of plain and the other of Italian.
