"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

Train Wreck Rescheduled

A continuing resolution keeps the US government funded for two more weeks. The deadline is now pushed back to March 19.

It doesn't work that way with real trains.

It is interesting that Belgium has had no government for almost a year. In this way, Belgium is better set up than the US, which apparently needs active intervention by government in order to function at all.
