Into nature’s woodland

December 13, 2012
The Daily Mining Gazette

To the editor:

If I could choose to be the richest man in the world, to be the smartest person to ever live, what would I want to be? Where would I want to go? This year, 2012, I have gone out into nature's woodland making it my 67th year. Back a long time ago, I went deer hunting with a friend and his dad; however, back in 1999 I quit hunting the white tail deer but still go with the hunting gang. Today, I just walk around the woods with a cane. From where we park our car to my favorite spot is about three miles and I study nature.

Back in the 1940s, there were snowshoe rabbits everywhere. When studying nature, I found out whenever a species overpopulates, nature comes along and eliminates them. Now I understand why. I told the world a super nova was going to liquidate the human race. As I wait for my son to come and help me get back to our car because when I fall down, he helps me get back on my feet, however, today I don't want to leave and go back into a jungle where everybody is at war.

Addendum: Since the beginning of time, people have been predicting the end of the age. Today, our planet is almost five billion years old and if you would have had the privilege of reading a good book, you would have found out whenever the author says something is going to happen, it happens.

P.S. Mister President, if you would have come to my camp when I spent over 20 days in my God's woodland, there is no doubt in my mind I could have told you what to do to keep the world from going to war.
