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

Go to the beach!

yes, I know, this was started in Florida in February this year to stop offshore drilling.

And we know how Obama answered on March 31.

And we know the consequence on April 20 and ongoing.


If nothing we do matters, all it matters is what we do.

We cannot wallow in our powerlessness – it’s bad for the soul.

I’ll be in Conney Island today. I’ll have some photos.

Click the image at this post for locations close to you and come.

If your beach is not there, start your own chain with your friends or family.

Who knows? It may be your last chance to take a dip in the ocean anyway…

I would really want to believe the good news in the papers today. I really would.

I’d love a sweeping finance bill on Wall Street, but it’s Wall Street whichΒ  celebrates and the unemployed shoved under the carpet so… But I love their fallen Stalin statue photo…

The fact that Obama Times calls that “historic” makes me more suspicious

I would also love to believe BP that relief wells are on target (what target?) but it’s the second part of the headline that motivates this non-news to be trumpeted: Stock falls

Shouldn’t the well have been on target ever since May when it was started?

Here’s the same non-news in LA with a more appropriate image

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?

Can people believe or understand contradictory swim advisories?

And on the war, predictions are not that rosy either

In NY, the media is having fun with Paterson – it’s budget battle time again
