Sentence of the day

In case you didn’t already know, my former colleague Poneke is back blogging. To celebrate the occasion, here is a line from his latest post on climate change:
Selling “carbon offsets” is nothing more than a resurrection of the religious “indulgences” sold by churches in Europe 1000 years ago, whereby those who had “sinned” could buy an “indulgence” from the church to cleanse the sin.

Thank you for such a compliment Stephen, and I would like to add that my beloved thought that this following line was her favourite:

Bless me Father, for I have flown.I hadn't thought she was raised a Catholic (like me) till she chortled at that.

kind regards
