The other day was Earth Day, the sacred day of environmentalists and anti-capitalists.
But Earth Day shouldn't slip by without a nod to the guy whose idea it was. And the editors at dollarsandcrosses.com remind us that Earth Day's founder, Ira Einhorn, was so deeply into recycling that he composted his ex-girlfriend. It's safe to assume that her participation in that environmental project was not voluntarily.
Somehow it actually does fit together. Environmentalists, for the most part, seem to yearn for a world without people, by which they mean other people.
