I couldn't get the red eye out of Rich's eyes because I cannot figure out how to make that function work on our photo program, so he'll just have to look scary.
I don't normally pitch the books I'm reading, just list them and hope someone takes notice, but I am really enjoying Fewer. Fewer is a great look at the actuality of population change in our world, including the poorer and less developed countries, in contrast to the population explosion hype that has been on for the last 40 years. It's a good look at why there are 5 billion people missing (we were supposed to reach 11 billion people by now). I also highly recommend Amusing Ourselves to Death, it was published in 1985 and almost seems prophetic now.
