RELATIVE KNOWLEDGE

My brother-in-law offers a thoughtful speculation.

Historians and archaeologists often wonder, "What happened to Mayan civilization? It seems to have simply faded away for no apparent reason."

And then there's this: hurricanes kill and displace thousands along the Gulf Coast, in Mexico, and in Central America. Mudslides bury entire villages. Flood waters wash away every vestige of human existence in their path.

Now we know what happened to Mayan civilization. Kudos to brother Rolando.
