    Politics must be informed by all sorts of things, certainly history is an important one. And as the diarist says, those issues of water and land use don't go away; they're more urgent now than ever.

    If anyone thinks history is dull, read this series; it's breathtaking!

      and this story is, I think you can tell, one of my all-time favorites to tell and share with others. Your insight to history and its important is also very telling, RiveroftheWest. I think 90% of the problem in this country is we don't learn a damn thing from the past. It's just human nature and poly + tics as usual. Just posted the next installment a bit late (I HAVE to have my few hours bike riding every day) but now it's on the air, as it were. Hope you enjoy this installment, too.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
