Sunny side of life

"All is for the best in the best of all possible worlds," said Dr Pangloss, echoing the philosopher Gottfried Leibniz, in Voltaire’s novel Candide.

DDT is back!

I was in Tanzania last week helping to evaluate the progress of some projects. During the week many of the members of the team complained of sleeplessness and bad dreams.  I believed pesticides were a probable cause because I had been to that particular hotel previously and knew they used insecticides liberally. I had already asked them not to spray my room. When I checked, it turned out they were using DDT!  Of course, I have no proof that DDT was causing these problems, but we could not think of anything else.
