If The Graduate came out today, the advice given to Dustin Hoffman wouldn’t be “plastics” but “solar.” That’s where the economy needs to go, must go, will go. Countries that get there first will be the countries that survive the coming catastrophe. Young people looking for work, I’m telling you right now, solar is where it’s at.

Please leave a comment with your first 50 words on the topic “solar.”

  2. Jaxon got up from the bar seat and held on to the bar counter trying to steady himself. Drinking had not helped him forget the betrayal he had witnessed. Moving unsteadily toward the door, he encountered his wife’s lover. All he remembered was seeing red and lunging without thinking. The man threw a swift punch to the solar plexus setting Jax off balance and knocking the wind out of him. He was doubled over on the floor writhing in pain and trying to catch his breath as two bouncers dragged him out to the curb.
