22. Having spent the first 50 years in Oklahoma, that just sounds normal to me.



I'm not decrying the problems, and I think we are crazy for not addressing this, but the world is changing, and I think we are far beyond anything but learning to work with what we have created for ourselves.

Part of the problem is that we spent the last 50 years building a country on the back of pollution, now we want to get all moral and tell the rest of the world they need to do something different, have less stuff.

Yeah, that's gonna work.

And coming from a place where we created the Dustbowl, and where tornadoes come through and level - and I mean level - 1/2 mile wide swaths of homes and people, where it can be 103 degrees for 3-4 weeks, with spikes to 110, weather extremes are a fact of life.

Not looking forward to what is coming.
