The Tipping Point
So, phew. We were just about to send 8000 Marines to Guam, but luckily Rep. Hank Johnson, who is sharp as a tack (and a Democrat, I’m proud to say), took notice of this folly and blew a hole in it. He pointed out that depositing all that Marine life on the tiny island would cause it to “tip over and capsize,” which would really mess things up.
It’s comforting to know that at least some elected officials are familiar with geology and tipping points and Marine activity and the width of Guam and so forth.
I sure as heck hope they don’t turn around and send those Marines to California. We’re already people-heavy here. Another 8000 could cause us to dip into the Pacific, and the east coast to rear up and send a bunch of damn Bostonians rolling in our direction.
