Well, today was a work through lunch day, so better luck tomorrow. In the 15 seconds of daylight I saw, it seemed to be a nice day out. For now, I'm back in the basement with my fellow Morlocks. :(

Charles river question

I was wondering if any of you know whether or not the Charles River as it runs beside Harvard Square is worth a shot. I've fished the river for bass off Soldiers Field Park with a lot of success,...

Any hints would be appreciated. I don't need to know the locations of your secret spots, just a rough idea of an area where I can park and wander around a nice, quiet river for a few hours. Fish...

The plan for another 1,000 coal-fired power plants in the next 20 years is also incredible. Granted, the U.S. has huge reserves of coal (up to 200 yrs by some estimates), but the amount of filth...

I'm with BobK on this one. With human population growth on a J shaped curve, it can't help but crash if current trends are followed.
