Gadflies and Signs of Hope
What is the purpose of writing? Is it to inform, merely? Surely not. For that, you need a good reference book. Is it to poke and prod readers out of their complacency and make them want to do something to make our shared planet better? Definitely a laudable ambition. You'll find some of that in this issue. You'll also find stories and images that might, also, be signs of hope amid the worrisome trends of the world. Our contributors have found a nice balance this week. See if you don't agree. Take the time to examine their efforts.
