"The populations of Europe, Russia and Japan are declining, and those of China and India  are levelling off. The United States alone among great powers  will be increasing its share of world population over time.  Relying on the import of money, workers, and brains is a Ponzi scheme that works."
               --- Michael Lind, the New America Foundation, in The Economist, Dec. 19th
"We live in the field of relativity. Things change."
                                             -- film director David Lynch
