  • Humanity's future depends on better choices

    My old friend and work colleague Brian was an academically qualified scientific researcher before he retired. He spent 55-plus years performing, supervising and managing a selection of scientific endeavors and programs sponsored by the Western world governments, industry and philanthropists during the last half of the 20th century.  He worked in England and all over the USA and still travels extensively to Europe and the Far and Middle East.

    Alice was Bruce’s campaign treasurer and he never spent a cent without her approval. One night when I pulled out a tattered check to pay for his book, “Cowboy in the Roundhouse,” Bruce mentioned that Alice also gave him only one check at a time.
