Sefano, I honestly do not understand how that whole notion got so much
mileage when we can see plenty of people prospering in much warmer climates
than that which you and I live.  Italy isn't nearly as warm as some other
places, ja?  So we would wear less clothing.  That would be a good thing in
itself.  I would be so horny all the time.

It's not so much hoping, but rather what are we actually doing, especially
when it comes to investing my own sacred money.  Currently I am expressing
skepticism while actually betting with the global warming people, for I am
contemplating planting a buttload of trees at the cool edge of their viable
range.  If the global warming people come thru, fine for me.  If the global
cooling people are right, I lose my sacred money and go hungry.  They scare

So you see, money is the root of all evil.  Except of course when it is in
*my* grubby paws, at which time it becomes the root of all good. And the
trunk and branches as well, and I am the leaves.
