POPULATION BOMB
July 4, 1999
To the editor: The United States and Europe are not the entire world. A recent letter to the editor simply forgot that most people on this little planet do not live in the U.S. or Europe. They live in Asia, Africa, South America, etc. The populations of these continents are not shrinking. They are growing — exponentially. That is not just a matter of 78 million more each year. It is the old problem of doubling a quantity, then doubling it again, then again, and again, and again. The amount of whatever it is - pennies, people, or grains of rice on a chessboard - gets very big very fast. This is how the world’s population is growing. The world’s population, not just European nations and the U.S.

PICKETT LINE JULY 4, 11, AND 18
July 4, 1999
Twenty-five years ago we were busily celebrating our Bicentennial, and as that historic year 1976 approached the writer Irving Kristol asked, in an American Heritage article, “What Is There to Celebrate?” As our Fourth of July neared, the last (obviously) of this century, I went back to that article and asked the question myself. Kristol wrote in 1974, and you may remember that in 1974 Richard Nixon resigned the presidency. Kristol was somewhat more pessimistic in ‘74 than I think he would have been two years later, in the time of the tall ships in New York harbor and an America much kinder and friendlier than in ‘74.

SOUNDOFF ON BALL FIELD WOE
July 4, 1999
I went to watch my grandson, who has cerebral palsy, play on the Unified baseball team. They play their games on the new Free State softball diamond. It’s a lovely field, but you have to walk up and down a hill to it. It’s on a good sidewalk until just before you get to the field, then you have to cross over very rough, rutted ground. Surely for one night a week, children could have a better field. Isn’t there a ball field more suitable for handicapped children to play on? Annette Deghand, city director of special populations, started the baseball program this year. After deciding to hold it on Tuesday nights, she said, she learned the facilities choices were limited and that the softball field at Free State was the only one available. “I knew Free State wasn’t the absolute best place,” she said, “but facilities are tight. In the future, I’ll try to get a facility like Woody Park, which should be better.” Woody Park isn’t available on Tuesday nights this summer.
