This is the 250th essay (give or take a few) that I’ve written since initiating I‘n’I in August 2003 and I’ve written well over a quarter of a million words. Buckminster Fuller said the he believed that the human race was a success as long as it continued to exist and although something of a tautology, the phrase embodies an attitude toward life that is wholy commendable. I too, remain an eternal optimist (even if I do have the occasional lapse) but it is clear that we have reached some kind of watershed. Something has to give and I’m damned if it’s going to be me!
