I'm in spring planting overload mode at the moment, so just a quick post.
Many thanks for the good words on the last post. It did take most of a day to write. It ain't easy, trying to be lucid.
I've had the outline of "the book" on my computer for more than 10 years. At this point, it's good I didn't write it then; it would be obsolete and under documented by now.
What I don't have is time to write it. So, if you wanna see the book; help me out here- find a nice publisher who will pay a good advance, so I can afford to take the time. :-)
And, one way to make that happen- is to increase the demand. If you really liked that post- please do pass it on- and ask others to pass it on. I watch my hit counter- and while the hit rate here tripled when I asked folks to pass on the fury about hunger, it didn't bump at all, for this last post- same old steady rate.
One quick link: this op-ed piece was in last Sunday's Washington Post. Since then, it's kind of disappeared. It's seriously radical for the Post- outrageously outspoken on just who controls the food in the world. "They're Global Citizens, They're Hugely Rich, And They Pull The Strings." With details. "David Rothkopf, a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, is the author of 'Superclass: The Global Power Elite and the World They Are Making.' "
