Thank you Ron,
I am actually a good-natured person who likes to challenge conventional
views. And I agree with you completely about marmosets.
I wish there were an alternative for those people who chop down the natural
world to make a living. I think the majority are helplessly poor. And they
certainly don't know about the complexities of an ecosystem. I believe one
day we will solve the crisis, but I think quite a bit more destruction will
take place first. I am not in favor of it. I am resigned to it and hope it
can be minimized.
I'll have to take your advice about American slang. I am quite cognizant
about slang as I am the slang consultant for our European colleagues who
work here in the US (I work for Henkel of Duesseldorf, Germany). I find
that our coworkers arrive with a very good command of English but they
cannot understand anything discussed in our meetings.
I have had two other comments to me from the list to my private e-mail. The
whole subject of extinction and the history of life is a passion of mine.
Thanks for responding.
