Sometime in my life, I began to feel that the world was getting more crowded.  I spent too much time working in libraries for a living.  I suppose it is like working as a custodian and having a messy house.  I became less likely to do research.

Now that we have the magic box, statistics are easy.  Coming up with numbers is easy.  Verifying suspicions is easy.

When I was born, there were 2.5 billion people on the planet.  The population is about to hit 8 billion.  I was justified in feeling that the world is crowded.

John Smith, IIMXIII is the avatar of an award winning poet, artist, etc. who still lives in the Palouse country of the Pacific NW. He has not received much notice with his prose . . . but as his avatar, I hope that he keeps plugging along.
