NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:
Reply to Betty “for the Transcript” from Billy “to the Transcript.”
Betty’s first few paragraphs, as she says: “are not news to anyone.” Close to 1,000 Intergovernmental Panelists going on junkets to Japan, Germany and Denmark is not news. Obama took almost that many with him to get his Peace Prize!
However, I read on, because “the reports coming from these sessions will be important to every citizen and every country on earth!” And, of course, I wanted to find out what W. Berry, author, poet, farmer and environmentalist had to say. Actually, I already considered myself to be a full citizen of the earth and I’m trying to live in cooperation with the space I occupy. Plus, I recently wrote a letter to my representative, Jim Inhofe, to compliment him on his work on the carbon revenue tax.
One caveat for Betty on the other “possible source of environmental support that might be mined more fully than politicians”: supercalifragilisticextrialidosous philanthrocapitalists, hereafter referred to as SP’s.
Betty and Berry remind us “we know who these people are” and recommend “leadership from the bottom,” bypassing recalcitrant politicians and appealing directly to the SP’s to save the earth.
Betty needs to go to the page after her letter “for the Transcript” and read about the nanotyrannnus lancensis skeletons. The guy who found them must’ve been a fan of “Mork and Mindy.” The theory was that some wealthy bidder would pay a ton of money for Nano/Nano’s jaw and then donate it to a museum. But the offer wasn’t high enough! In Dallas a while back they used to call that the “greater fool theory.”
Betty needs to know and perhaps mention it to Berry that the SP’s got their dough from the very source Betty wants to cap, so that not only would her plan reduce the U.S. to a third world country (the actual goal, by the way) it would also involve the SP’s cutting their own throats!
