What is anthropogenic noise? Where is, supposedly, the only place without it? Check out link to the right: One Square Inch of Silence. Fascinating! OwlsThree-fourths of the way through: What is that sound??!!?

“Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation…tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation.” Jean Arp, artist. Said during the 21st century?

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: wordsmith.org

We have probed the earth, excavated it, burned it, ripped things from it, buried things in it, chopped down its forests, leveled its hills, muddied its waters, and dirtied its air. That does not fit my definition of a good tenant. If we were here on a month-to-month basis, we would have been evicted long ago.-Rose Bird, Chief Justice of California Supreme Court (2 Nov 1936-1999)

Commas? We love commas! Crucial for our writing. STOP creating comma splices. Use them appropriately.  Grammar_5_Uses_For_Commas_Final
