Mr. President-Elect, Thanks for asking...

Woohoo, the airwaves are no longer filled with campaign rhetoric. However, now that the election is over, it is time to put that revitalized civic interest to good use. There is work to be done, and Uncle Sam needs YOU, your views, your input, your elbow grease.

But what should be done first? asked "the smartest, most interesting people [they] know to answer the following question":

In 100 words or less, what should the next president do in his first 100 days to address the planet's most pressing problems?

Click here to see the fascinating answers--and you can comment there as well.

Wouldn't it be awesome for your phone to ring, and President-Elect Obama was on the line, asking YOU what you believe are the the most pressing issues and how do you suggest he handle them? So, I ask you, members of the Tarleton community: What do you suggest?

(Personally, I am going to hop over to and post an invitation to him to the UN Climate meetings.)

I loved this article. It is astonishing to read that many people are saying the same thing. They are not all worried about money, but the environment. Great topic!
