Joe Souchery who called me onceÂ from his Radio Show afterÂ I performedÂ voodoo wrote this about common sense. I think he’s completely in denial about the effect of global warmingÂ from our burning millions of tons of fossil fuels every day. Perhaps Joe has discovered that he can leaveÂ his dog in a sealed up car on a hot day because somehow the UV light flooding in the windows doesn’t turnÂ into infrared radiation because he doesn’t use the cigarette lighter. But I digress. Anywho,Â Joe’s discovered that he’s considered a “crunchy conservative.”
Good for him. I turn off the lights too when there’s a heat wave.Â I also close the drapes during the day,Â open the windows at night, turn off my computer when I’m not using itÂ and brew my coffee outside rather than trap more heat in the kitchen.
Of course, contrary to the headline in Joe’s piece not all “comman sense” is all that sensible. For instance, while it sound sensible to fight terrorists abroad rather than at home it doesn’t make sense if you don’t take the ancient Greek myth about the Hydra into account. You’ve probably heard of it -Â aboutÂ the monster who grew two new heads every time one was cut off.
Now that we are seen as cheering on Israel’s bombardment of civilians in Lebanon we can expect new bin Ladins to emerge.Â Too bad our troops “over there” are beginning to lose their morale. Its hot in Iraq too. I hope the troopsÂ turn off their appliancesÂ whenever they go out to patrol Baghdad.
