Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, mild island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Tuesday morning, the 10th day of April, 2012, a quiet, sun splashed start to the day, as we gear up for yet another spring time journey through the maze that defines this complicated democratic country WE all live in at this ‘present’ moment in time… Before getting into all of that, please take that moment to peruse the full moon rising over Sampson’s Island a few nights ago, right here in Cotuit, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, a moon so bright one could easily traverse Nantucket Sound all the way to the Vineyard, with ‘ner another light to shine the way. If you need any other proof that Cape Cod and the islands might just be your best bet this summer to SEA American nature at it’s best, just imagine what this reporter witnessed before sitting down to write this ‘all important’ blog, a large adult swan flying from east to west, across the waters of Cotuit Bay, over the white pines of my home and into the blue sky that greets this most beautiful sand bar known to man–Cape Cod. There is nothing in this world more graceful and astonishingly beautiful than a white swan flying only a few feet above your head on a serene morning on the Cape. So come on down and visit US, we will, as always, ‘leave the LIGHT on for YA!’. The Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Florida, a case that should garner more public attention as it affects ALL of US, took a turn towards that wide ARC ever bending towards JUSTICE yesterday, with the special prosecutor, appointed by Governor Rick Scott, Angela Corey, dismissing the grand jury that was supposed to tackle this racially divided case today, a bold and courageous move on her part, as she is most likely going to bring charges against the man who shot and killed the 17 year old armed with Skittles and an iced tea, George Zimmerman, on Februrary 26, 2012, charges that should have been brought forth on that same date, as probable cause dictated, the ball dropped time after time by a suspect police force and other ‘powers that be’ (for the moment)–for they would have if the races were reversed–thereby, hopefully, bringing some relief and eventual closure to the parents of Trayvon–Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin–who obviously loved their son as much as any of US love OUR kids. Trayvon Martin represents ALL of our kids, and those possessing, or possessed by, hateful minds are unable to truly see that and thus, are not worthy of your time or consideration, as their overinflated EGOS are obviously in charge of their daily existence, asleep to the greater good and a power that is infinitely more powerful than any amount of racism, intolerance and unfairness they can drum up, “trickling” all the way up the food chain–I’m looking at YOU Karl Rove, architect of American Crossroads/GPS! Good Luck with all the LIES you plan on launching against our very fine and funny President, who read to the children yesterday at the White House Easter Egg Roll, fun had by all! President Obama with the First Lady Michelle, daughters and “Bo” on the White House lawn, as the children got into the spirit that could make the harshest critic of said leader of the free world smile, if only for a nano second. Yes sir, Bo, the dog–son of “Splash”, a Portugese Water Dog this reporter happened to wash for Teddy Kennedy a few years back–listening intently his masters reading of the classic children’s book, “Where the Wild Things Are” , acting it out to a group of lucky wide eyed children, giving us his best roar, fangs and claw that he will most definitely need in this upcoming fight for OUR democracy in the days, weeks and months to come. For if you think it is anything other than that, you have not been paying attention to the fine details, remembering that ‘the devil’ is in those details, much like hidden fees and penalties big banks use to rip off their customers, or, on a much larger scale, an investment bank like Goldman Sachs doing the same to it’s investors, telling them one thing and betting against them at the same time, nice. Where the wild things are indeed Mr. President! Keep on dodging those wooden nickles offered up by FOX “NEWS”, side effects include, but are not limited to, paranoia, tunnel vision, delusions of grandeur, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, sleep walking, trouble concentrating on reality, and equal trouble going to the bathroom. Should you have any of these conditions, please seek the advice of your physician right away, and should you not have a physician in the near future due to the fact the GOP plans to do away with “Obamacare”, Medicare and Medicaid as we now know it, well, uh, um, you are now instructed to suck it up, continue watching FOX for more instructions, I mean details, thereby keeping ya’ll in the ‘not your grandfather’s GOP’ tractor beam of ignorance and bliss. You are hereby commanded to continue voting against your own best interests and bow down to the plutocracy to come–you shall now kneel before General Zod! (credit the classic 1980 film Superman II, starring the late, great Christopher Reeve; also starring the indubitable Gene Hackman, playing the arch villain Lex Luthor)…that is all. Have a nice day everybody! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
