some here cant hear, or see:(
By Morton Kondracke
Twenty years ago, during the Reagan administration, I encountered a young producer at National Public Radio who said she and her husband had decided not to have children because they were convinced they'd die in a nuclear war.
Immediately, I told her, ''Please, have children. There's not going to be a nuclear war.'' I have no idea what she did.
Today, I might give the same advice, but not so swiftly. Children born into the 21st century face a far more perilous future than those in the 20th century - partly because adults now seem to lack the courage and wisdom to protect them.
