This Corner was discombobulated for while and I'd like to see it fully functioning again. First, people are encouraged to write anything at all. It might not deal with Planning. If ideas elude you at the moment, read the Essays in Perry's Corner. Midst all that verbiage there may be something that strikes your fancy, so go ahead. Either way this column exists for you. Write. And you're bound to find an audience.

Geonomics "Law of the Earth"

Hello Perry,

I recently discovered the following web site and have become intrigued with the ideas expressed within..the shift in property taxes from buildings and production to land.geonomy society

A google search of Geonomics turned up the following links--->

School of Living

http://www.taxreform.com.au/essays/geonomic.htm

I wonder what financiers and industry leaders think of Geonomics?

Would anyone care to share their thoughts or viewpoints on tax reform?

This was supposed to be a reply and ended up as a separate message. So you'll have to read it that way, unless someone more comfortable than I comes along. See the message labeled "Thread".

Back in Actions

Hi Perry and the whole gang
Hope everything is ship shape again. Been a while.
We are hunkering down in Barrow, Alaska for the setting of the sun on Nov. 18 then it won't return till Jan. 22, 2003.
But we are playing good rocking music, inc. Louie Louie, as we work and shovel snow.
Warmest wishes to you all.
Earl

Yes Jen and all, we are shoveling snow, lots of it.
Actually wind blows around our rather sparse snow fall, since we are an arctic desert. But blow it does and this morning I had to shovel thru a big drift blocking my front door.
"Back on the Chain Gang" is a good song for snow shoveling......also maybe "Carry on My Wayward Son" by Kansas and "The Weight."
and "Sixteen Tons" by Ernie Ford.
Stay warm
Earl
