Meanwhile down at the mall there’s a mid-season sale. Everything’s discounted – oceans, rivers, oil, gene pools, fig wasps, flowers, childhoods, aluminum factories, phone companies, wisdom, wilderness, civil rights, ecosystems, air – all 4,600 million years of evolution. It’s packed, sealed, tagged, valued and available off the rack (No returns). As for justice – I’m told it’s an offer too. You can get the best that money can buy.
