Vibrations of echoes -- mere hints of the fear=85 El or Al was the big dog of legend, And he struck his terror chords when he threatened what was dear. Then the people scampered madly to their squalid little caves, And they prayed forgiveness for imagined sins. They blamed the women openly, and the women bought on in, Or this move by cultures in retreat=85 would, simply, not have been. To many times in the harshest of pasts we've given up, and failed. Our Founding Fathers _mostly_ took the low path. For all respect and adulation of the rightist, landed few, Corruption was their hallmark, and we've always felt their wrath. Go further back and El or Al becomes the El-shaddai. God declaring all out war, and swinging nature's fists. Something grander with potential, knocking flat their house of cards, Collapsing all their cities, they only _thought_ they had the gist. El-Nino is now named just so, another god we're sensing. And things are getting wetter where t'was dry. The fish that like it warmer are swimming way up North. These are massive climate changes that can make a billion die. And some will say that it was _our_ fault, their hypothesized conclusion. Some will say: we have been punished for our sins. Some will say: we dumbly failed to meet a gentle God's condition. Some will say: we brought our doom upon us (only) once again. But our failing is the disregard we hold for one another. Our failing is compassionless regard. Our failing is in business with its 'eat-your-children' ethic. Our failing's in the lawn waste lying moldered off rich yards. Water thieves and wasters is what we are to him -- Him we call El-Nino out of fear. We had the tools/accoutrements for an efficacious living, But short term thought was rampant -- we'll be crying in our beer? Bet the DuPonts and the Morgens will ensconce their mountain castles. You can bet they have their freeze-dried food laid in. An early bird will get the worm on news that they hear first! As that=92s the way they write the rules -- that's the way it's always been. El-Nino is like El-shaddai of a hoary misted past. It raises all the warning flags of danger. It belies the current deep felt wish for gentle, loving gods. It makes me sneer at short term fools in anger. Lehmberg@snowhill.com El-Nino -- <God>-<Small one> A lot could probably be gained determining the etiology, or reason for the assignation of that name. I sure hope we're girding our loins for this thing=85 Better over prepared than under! -- Explore the Alien View? http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/arecibo/46/ "I cleave the heavens, and soar to the infinite.

Consider the leadership that ages the bad news until it is unusable.
