Long ago I attended a private school in Martinez, California. This school, which closed in 1975, was immortalized in Ernest Callenbach's seminal 'green counterculture' novel Ecotopia. David Wilson maintains a home page for its alumni and friends:
I belong to the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, and love science of all kinds.

One volcano spews more gunk in a day than millions of guilt ridden Americans converts could possibly 'reduce.'
But don't take my word for it.
So how's your politics, anyway? Take this simple test and you might be surprised:
Are you religious? Willing to go beyond the easy, familiar conventions? True Love is real, and that means for you also. This is the home page of my local (San Francisco Bay area) church: Bay Area Family Church. We also have a national home page: HSA-UWC
