While we fret over oil, another liquid is even more precious to life and is likewise running low. That would be water, of course, and the lack of it will be felt more and more as America pursues growth in places that shouldn't be growing -- Las Vegas, Phoenix, Albuquerque, El Paso, Los Angeles, Denver, like that. An economist named David Zetland has a blog, aguanomics.com, that is devoted to the topic. In general, I feel that economists are one of the plagues of modern life, but there's a lot of fascinating stuff on this site. [Guy should have married an English major, so his posts would get vetted for usage and spelling before they go up.] Watch for San Antonio to grab up Guadalupe River water to put on the golf courses and lawns.
