精彩书摘

  1. And These Are the People Who Live in the World We Live in

  IT sounds incredible, but nevertheless it is true. If everybody in this world of ours were six feet tall and a foot and a half wide and a foot thick (and that is making people a little bigger than they usually are), then the whole of the human race (and according to the latest available statistics, there are now nearly 2,000,000,000 descendants of the original Homo sapiens and his wife) could be packed into a box measuring half a mile in each direction. That, as I just said, sounds incredible, but if you dont believe me figure it Out for yourself and you will find it to be correct.

  If we transported that box to the Grand Canyon of Arizona and balanced it neatly on the low stone wall that keeps people from breaking their necks when stunned by the incredible beauty of that silent witness of the forces of Eternity and then called little Noodle, the dachshund and told him (the tiny beast is very intelligent and loves to oblige) to give tile unwieldy contraption a slight push with his soft brown nose, there would be a moment of crunching and ripping as the wooden planks loosened stones and shrubs and trees on their downward path and then a low and even softer bumpity-bumpity-bump and a sudden splash when the outer edges struck the banks of the Colorado River.

  Then silence and oblivion.

  The human sardines in their mortuary chest would soon be forgotten.

  The Canyon would go on battling wind and air and sun and rain as it has done since it was created.
