Des champs de chanvre qui chantent l’avenir February 14, 2006

Il faut croire que le chanvre a fait naître des vocations parmi la jeunesse… On s’inquiétait de la part toujours plus réduite des agriculteurs parmi la population active française ayant un emploi. Eh bien messieurs les politiciens, réjouissez-vous !

Nos campagnes françaises, en voie de désertification, vont se repeupler et les champs en jachère redevenir des surfaces agricoles utiles. Oui, car la jeunesse, préoccupée par les problèmes environnementaux, a décidé qu’il fallait réhabiliter le chanvre, pour le bien de l’humanité et de nos campagnes, hélas désertées au profit de mégalopoles surpeuplées et surpolluées.

N’ayez crainte, leur aspiration est sincère. Depuis longtemps ils rêvent de porter des slips en fibres de chanvre. L’un veut en isoler les murs de sa maison, l’autre souhaite qu’éole souffle dans la voile en chanvre de son bateau.

Lu par ici.

Last month, several researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh reported they had examined some 438 vulnerabilities in programs made by 325 software vendors and found the patching speed of open-source vendors was roughly 60 percent faster than that of the closed-source vendors they studied.

Amidst all the noise about this whole Iraq war stuff, I believe Cindy Sheehan‘s voice is one that deserves to be heard – if only for her courage. While dubya was addressing the media with this year’s State of the Union, Cindy was getting jailed for wearing a T-shirt.

Here’s the story, straight from Casey’s Mom.

Looks like blogs are a little too cool for Iranian leaders. (from Andrew Sullivan)

Saddam and his fellow defendants are charged with the torture and killing of 148 men and teenage boys from the town of Dujail, 55 kilometers, or 35 miles, north of Baghdad

I naïvely hope this means that Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush and Co. will also be charged and tried for the same crimes.
