Dear Colleagues:

Last week I wrote you in slightly blissful ignorance of the outside world, but reality certainly came crashing down on all of us this week with the mass killing of 9 In Historic Black Church In Charleston, South Carolina. I am in agreement with president Obama when he announces that he will not accept this as the new status quo and “yet another mass killing,”  which he says does not happen in other civilized countries and with this type of frequency, Complacency and acceptance does not solve the problem.

Is it overpopulation, envy, greed, thirst for power, intense poverty, global warming to name just a few***. ? Please comment on the website. I am a firm believer that insight can lead to rational solutions to a problem and of all professional disciplines, we most certainly should be able to have Read the rest of this post »
