But I’ve been meaning to get to my book review of “Challenging nature” by Lee M. Silver. He has a few chapters on population growth and GM food and other genetic engineering (most relevant to the sustainable population of the world.)

It’s just a number – like the average temperature of the planet.

I believe I know her… the three hundred millionth, that is. Gabrielle is beautiful, healthy, and born into a family in which (absent planet- or society-wide catastrophe) she will never want for any material thing. It’s the other 299,999,999 I worry about. (Actually, Gabrielle was born about a day too early to be the 300,000,000th. Her father is one of my best friends.)

She could be the one, Steve, if the water was low and slow in the Rio Bravo.

Ah…Lucky Gabrielle!
