    Gunpowder and lead shot do not contribute to the evolution of humanity. Makes me think of anthropologist Loren Eiseley in his book, "The Immense Journey."

    “The need is not really for more brains, the need is now for a gentler, a more tolerant people than those who won for us against the ice, the tiger and the bear. The hand that hefted the ax, out of some blind allegiance to the past fondles the machine gun as lovingly. It is a habit man will have to break to survive, but the roots go very deep.”

    I guess we love the checkerboard as it reinforces our us vs them mentality.

    Thanks, Lon. This is excellent.
