Well, that is good news, of a sort.
That is, it's not that it's necessarily any smaller than it used to be - that would have been GREAT news.
But, to hear that that it's (probably) smaller than we thought...well, like I said, that is good news.
The fact that it exists at all, imho, means that we as the guilty parties (and yes, that certainly includes me) should be ashamed of ourselves.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. - John Lubbock
