The "legacy" of Silent Spring has been the death of millions of third world people from Malaria. Sometimes you need to be careful in what you ask for.

As if you give a damn about those millions, mostly people of color, ya' ol' azzhat! That you're a shameless, unrepentant bigot is well documented in many of your posts!

Ahhh - you know nothing as to my concern for the third world countries. In fact I'm betting you have never been to one and never personally lifted a finger to help let alone breaking a sweat over any of them.

I guess the black and brown people outside the US are somehow more acceptable to you... probably because they ARE outside the US, ya' bigot! And although I have been to a number of third a world counties, the GOP is working hard and fast at making the US a third world country! Nice to make a bet anonymously, though, makes it easier for you to welch on it, ya' ol' fool!
