And this is how Hands across the Sand in NYC happened
I was surprised at how many people actually showed up.
I believe some joined up from the beach
which is also great.
it felt good in the fog of the isolation the media blackout keep us
to see we were many
and now from elsewhere today: California
Florida- Honeymoon Island
Venice Beach, Fla
Delray Beach, Fla
Santa Cruz, Ca
Siesta Key beach – would that be one of Florida keys?
Laguna Beach, Fla
and even on lakes such as Lake Loveland, Colorado
Go to the beach!

and then comes the outright bad news:
In Mississipi the oil is closing in
The yet to be discovered effects on human health. IRS going after BP’s damage payments – yeay, Obama helps the victims!
Will we care when not just fish, birds and animals die?
In NY, the media is having fun with Paterson – it’s budget battle time again
and NY Post
