A Positive Note

I was awe-struck today by a positive article about E. B. White.  E. B. White is co-writer of the Elements of Style and apparently had a positive outlook on life.  I read the brief article and will include it on this site later after I attain the applicable permissions.

The Serial Killer Nobody Can Put Behind Bars

Since the dawn of time, water has killed people.  Vicious water has struck down one human after another, often by the dozens.  The legacy left behind is frightening.  Water is among the deadliest serial killers on Earth, which in part explains the low homicide rate on Mars.

The most famous mass slaughter that water committed was the Great Flood, when Noah and his family alone survived among all of humanity.  It rained for 40 days and 40 nights and…
