Seuss links

SH sent me his property-rights-help-the-environment reading of the Lorax here. A strained reading of the text, to be sure. But my reading is in the same boat: I have the Lorax literally speak for the brown bar-ba-loots, but only metaphorically speak for the trees.

Also entertaining is this free market parody of the Lorax, which includes this line:
"You fool!" he berated. "Can't you just understand?
Your supply is too high, it exceeds your demand.
It makes no fiscal sense to deforest this land!
I am, I should say, always in favor of measures that will align economic self interest with environmental good sense. I just don't think these things happen on their own.
