If you visit Germany you will find that there are strong efforts and government incentives to conserve energy as well.
So--I can visit and trade with Egypt, China, and Vietnam but not Cuba, all because of a bunch of émigrés who live in the past?
Wonderful article. However, wait until the siblings are all over 70 years old, and one has Parkinson's, one has extremely serious spine trouble, two are on the Right politically, one votes every which way, and one is on the Left. All have various ailments. Suddenly, one holds an unarticulated grudge against another; one tells another not to dare visit; another complains that a loving visit to see her was "way too hard on her." Two are Republicans and hate Obama, one dislikes, then likes Obama, and one has been an activist for Democratic causes. It's then that a person must truly have "grace under pressure" and make huge allowances for the siblings and herself, and despite slurs and slings, hurt feelings and peculiarities of character, keep on keeping on loving. Keep writing, keep calling, keep trying. Mr. Bruni, you don't know how hard it can be to stay in touch when siblings live in different states, some thousands of miles apart, and all are flawed and cranky and old. Boy heidy, that's what loving a sibling really can be--refusing to give up on them ever. Now, I say you and your siblings stay in practice with your loving of each other, and I personally don't care how much liquor y'all drink. Cheers!
is anyone confused by this study, I've been taking xanax for the past five years for anxiety, I'm in my mid-40's. I think it might be time for a doctor's visit.
Yes, but isn't wonderful to visit Viet Nam and observe all those happy citizens there flourishing under Communist rule?
Being an atheist, I find it difficult to care much about a place that wouldn't allow me to visit before or after the bulldozers.
I dunno, maybe David had a visit from the Ghost of Hubris Past, and now is desperately seeking Tiny Tim?
