:jail: There I go again, " forgetting my place ", I must be coming down with the " Old-Timers ". I forgot this is, The United States of America, and we're all supposed to be, fat, lazy, stupid, complacently sedated, and over-medicated, but never poignant, objectionable, or passionate.
In reference to New Orleans, I never claimed it was a housing hub, but rather a cultural, and educational one. The geography of the city prevents it from becoming a major sprawling housing center, like Dallas. This creates an inflated market, especially in the University District, which was the point, I was originally trying to make. I understand, there is some swampland, near Jersey, as well. Then of course, being on the eastern seaboard, they also are a possible target, for hurricane driven flooding. I for one, am of the mind, that the loss of New Jersey, would be a significantly smaller blow to humanity than would be the loss of New Orleans.
As for language, I will concede, I had not initially considered, the attraction, that a bee forum, would hold for children. As I am writing this reply, I am certainly not opposed, to ruffling the feathers, of other members, or the administration. " So what's new ?". I am actually quite proud, to have drawn a reprimand, so quickly. If you can' t take the heat, the kitchen door is yours, feel free, to throw me out of it. I would speculate ; that there are millions of forums with infinitely more topics, but to suggest I waste my time posting on things I care little or nothing about is absurd.
Which brings me back to topic, and the reason I came back to this page. I had a final thought on the subject. If we are, as a society, going to have a list of endangered species, under protection of law. Speculating that we could emerge, collectively, from our individual, self inflicted, drug induced, stupors, long enough to put the honey bee, on that list. The Honey Bee, would then become, the only member of that list, on which, the survival of almost every other member, would depend. Without Honey Bees, the endangered species list would soon be nothing more than a forgotten relic.
