Whats Good about Rome?

i dated beautiful italian girl from rome,back-in-the-d ay,she was studying music at crane school @SUNY potsdam(played the cello&i still visualize her staddling that insturment,sigh..) ..i visited rome one summer;she was working at bakery that made great bread..my memories of rome r All good..tho prisons provide jobs,they mess w/ a town..the ny state guards union has fronted the fite against changing rockefeller era drug laws-cuz they wanna keep their jobs..sure,everyon e wants to work,but how fk'd up is that?.keeping non-violent offenders behind bars so yu can keep a job is a deal w/ the devil&totally inhumane..wake-up, we need real jobs that make positive difference..educat e not incarcerate!  (Jul 14, 2010 | post #8)

Bravo-sounds like money well-spent!.getting money directly into the hands of the needy familys is so difficult,but very effective..better this than a mega-dam or international highway project..Feed and educate the young and they will delight you in old age..sometimes the simple solutions still work the best.no surprise there.!  (Jun 2, 2010 | post #1)

The Hydro project cost too much and will harm Guyana's ec...

i agree that many large hydro projects r enviromental nightmare..the idea of small,affordable dams does seem to warrant further study..oftimes the mega-projects appeal to international banks and provide profits to international construction corporations..keep ing it small and affordable makes too much common-sense to appeal to the outsized ego that unfortunately decides so many international projects..better to leave the rivers alone that to create gigantic silt&sludge collectors that deny local fauna their trditional spawning&feedi ng grounds..the damage can be immense and the costs can sky-rocket during construction,putti ng your country at the mercy of greedy pillagers..be careful Guyana and look at other national/natural mistakes so you don't repeat them..  (Jun 2, 2010 | post #3)
