It's been almost a week since I quoted Rana

and that just won't do.

The thing is, the surest way to turn moderates into radicals is to act as if they were. If you're going to be pilloried for simply raising questions, brutally punished for the crime of wanting to drink clean water and watch the frogs splashing in the sidestreams, as if those things were moral equivalents of ruining the whole system for everyone -- why not, then, do more? If the penalty for sitting quietly in a side eddy, and that for blowing up the dam and the outflow pipe are the same, is there a reason to sit quietly by, as if relying on protective camouflage still worked?

Go read the whole thing.

Bill, Nabhan and Childs (and Rosalyn Creasy, for that matter) are never off topic here.

I want to go to that conference now.
