I just got back from my local butcher where I bought a pound of ground beef to make Asian meatballs (served on a bed of quinoa with a yogurt-garlic-herb-lemon juice dressing.) On the sidewalk in front of me, a frazzled-looking mother pushed a multi-seat stroller filled with four toddlers of varying ages. Observing the scene, this is the thought that ran through my head: who would want to bring four children into this world?
An hour earlier, I had read the headlines of The New York Times: Supreme Court Strips Government of Crucial Tool to Control Pollution
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate carbon emissions from power plants, dealing a blow to the Biden administration’s efforts to address climate change.
The vote was 6 to 3, with the court’s three liberal justices in dissent, saying that the majority had stripped the E.P.A. of “the power to respond to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.”
Republicans cheered. Why? Why would they cheer such a ruling? The Clean Air Act? Who needs it? Important judgments delivered in the past are being torn down by these ghouls.

I’m depressed, and I’m not even American. Along with my ground beef, I also purchased a bottle of white wine that’s chilling in the fridge. I’m going to open it right now and get drunk.
