CLIMATE CHANGE . . .
. . . BUT WAS IT MARTIAN MADE?
If it was, they probably had a climate change denier chairing their Committee on Science & Technology.

BUILD YOUR OWN SCHOOL
It costs about $30,000, all tax-deductible, and helps not just children in the Third World but also at-risk U.S. youth who travel abroad to help build it. Reason enough to try to get rich — so you can do things like this. Here are photos of them building the new Allard K. Lowenstein school in El Amapara, a Nicaraguan village about 10 miles from the main road. (And here are photos of the kids with the school completed, at their new desks.) Al was a great American — everyone from Eleanor Roosevelt to William F. Buckley, Jr. thought so. The plaque at this new school reads, in English and Spanish: “He tried so hard to make a better world. Now it’s your turn.” In case you are deciding between the $93,400 top-of-the-line 97mpg Tesla and the $41,450 85mpg Mercedes, I say go with the Mercedes, build your own school, and you’ll still have $22,000 left in your pocket– plus the value of the $30,000 tax deduction.
Have a great weekend. Ho ho ho!
Quote of the Day
Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself.~Mark Twain
