Regular readers will have noted that I haven't exactly been in top form lately. Sorry. I have a lot of stuff to post when I feel more like writing and posting it. Nevertheless, the news that California is suing car manufacturers for pollution damages briefly stirred my apathy. I fear that this was both horrifying and inevitable. I am reminded of the premise of Atlas Shrugged -- the petty vindictive envy held by the human leech for those it feeds upon.
