We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I am particularly exercised by the lack of regularity exhibited by this particular glacier. Imagine! Retreating in 10 years more than it had done in the previous 100 years.
The administration must instruct the EPA to regulate glacial retreat. Glaciers must, in their movements, be regular and properly "glacial".
Confused Old Misfit
I too wonder who was there 100 years ago to register this glacier's margins? How can you tell where it begins and the 'other' glaciers end? Why is the calving of a glacier caused by the size of my truck engine?
