Population Problem

Behind every problem that we face in modern life is the one problem almost no one wants to talk about. Everything you hear or read talks about the benefits of growth and how we need more of it.

Skeeter Skates puts the real world in perspective

One of the dangers of providing you with my opinions each week - besides not having a clue where to put commas - is that it is easy to lose touch with reality and start acting like all the media pundits who think they are so smart that their IQs should be measured with a yardstick.
