Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell. Edward Abbey

No time for deep thoughts - or any thoughts for that matter. Just a quick tribute.

TODAY'S TRIBUTE: Professor Wangari Maathai is the coordinator of Kenya’s Greenbelt Movement, a tree-planting and women's empowerment programme. Over the years, she has learned that defending Kenya’s public forests is dangerous business. Dr Mathaai has been repeatedly beaten and imprisoned for her efforts to preserve Kenya’s natural wonders. She and the Greenbelt Movement have been labelled by the powers that be, as "subversive". May the ancestors protect Dr Maathai
