I can't resist passing along another boston.com Bigger Picture picture: floodwaters being released from Three Gorges Dam, from a typically (for boston.com) spectacular set on China.
I really don't know how they keep funding this amazing work, but I sure hope they don't stop.
Buy something from Boston.
The only thing we can be sure of about the future is that it will be absolutely fantastic. So if what I say now seems to you to be very reasonable, then I have failed completely. Only if what I tell you appears absolutely unbelievable, have we any chance of visualizing the future as it really will happen.
