Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

East Timor update
Hi, sorry to leave folks hanging, but I haven't checked internet for a couple of days. As Sasha indicated, I am not yet in East Timor and wasn't scheduled to leave until the beginning of July. I spoke with Peace Corps on Thursday and found out that they evacuated staff two weeks ago and were hoping to start the training at the end of September if things calmed down. That was before the UN evacuated staff and two UN workers were killed. I have my doubts that PC will reconstitute any time soon.

So my options are to wait it out and see if I can go in September. I don't think I will do that, mainly because the situation does not look like it will improve substantially before then and I would then have to find another assignment at that point. One possible re-placement for me is the Caribbean. I have to decline my Timor invite and then would be invited somewhere else, the Caribbean was mentioned in a phone call. I'm going to try to make a decision soonish and will keep you updated.

Here's the latest BBC article
