Update: I am SO happy to hear there is a new Lorax movie, and I hope it does the original one justice. I’m sure FOX News will bash it like they bashed the recent new Muppets movie–but, oh well, coverage like that simply tells us on which side of the environmental fence FOX News resides!
Have you ever watched The Lorax by Dr. Suess?
It’s the story of the Once-ler and the Truffula Tree, which he cuts down to make Thneeds, which everyone needs, and which displaces the Bar-ba-loots who eat the truffula fruits. The process, well, you just have to watch it… it will look familiar.
Here’s part one (14 minutes)They say I’m old fashioned, I live in the past, but sometimes I think Progress progresses too fast.
Here’s part two (11 minutes):LORAX to ONCE-LER: You’re glumping the pond where the Humming Fish hum. No more can they hum, for their gills are all gummed. So, I’m sending them off– oh, their future looks dreary. FISH : “I hear things are just as bad up in Lake Erie.”
Please, friends… it’s a story worth watching and advice worth heeding:
“A thought about something
that somebody ought:
Unless some one like you
cares a whole awful lot,
nothing’s going to get better.
