My family and I are in the midst of a move from Columbia, SC to Washington, DC.  There is nothing like moving to make you realize how much completely unnecessary crap you own.  I’m almost to the point of calling in napalm rounds on my own position to solve the problem.

I constantly remind my students that I am not any better than them – I too consume things that degrade the environment, and when I am participating in a global environmental assessment my travel often generates more carbon then two or three of them generate in their everyday lives.  Nobody’s perfect . . . and this damn move is reminding me that I am far from it.
