Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught

i have gained so much respect for venus this week - she seems much more open these days, strange that she seems so happy when her parents are getting divorced - or perhaps that is just a relief for her.
although i also hate her for taking patty out - just kidding - actually the way patty challenged her makes me much happier than if she had just beaten hantuchova or dokic.
