Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the fabulous island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the seventh day of June, 2011, another seasonable day on Cape, chalk full of sun, a cool breeze coming from the northeast and those big, puffy white clouds that remind one, regardless of your age, of summer time. While the rest of the nation is experiencing record heat, from Dallas to Chicago, who will hit 105 degrees today (with heat index), New England will be spared until tomorrow and Thursday, where then, we too, will feel the REAL effects of global warming… The image you see above is a house in Brewster that adorns the ever elusive concept of PEACE, although, by looking at this classic Cape Cod home, one could argue that the residents here probably don’t have any problem with the concept, as that sentiment is clearly stated for all the world to see. That was not the case yesterday in Washington D.C., with all hell breaking loose, as congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) let the world know about his use, or abuse, of the new social media, in this case ‘Twitter’, where he admitted to sending lewd photos of himself to several woman in a nationally televised news conference at the Sheraton in Washington, looking more like a watering hole in Kenya, as reporters clamoured to listen to Anthony’s tear felt apology to his wife, his constituents and the democratic party in general. I, for one, will accept that apology, for, as we have become all too aware, men behaving badly, when it comes to these fancy electronic devices, is not an isolated incident. On the contrary, we have had one sex scandal after another, some much worse than Weiner’s, and thus, should perhaps ask the question of our so called “leaders”–is it too difficult to REALIZE that when you are elected to a place of power and prominence, that you take that stewardship seriously, and that, in this technologically advanced day and age, every move you make will be documented and, in some cases, filmed for all eternity? Why is that so hard to understand? When you have bottom feeders, like Andrew Brietbart, you know, the guy who showed us all his racist stripes just a few months ago, going after you, don’t you think you might want to take proper precautions? Precautions like not engaging in junior high school crap? With the looming problem of the U.S. debt ceiling, two wars, well three really, and the very real problem of global warming, do we really have time for all of this nonsense? Congressman Weiner is an excellent spokesperson for the TRUTH and has the heart of a Lion when expressing the real needs and concerns of the American people, either on the House floor or in an interview with say, Rachel Maddow on MSNBC, and it would be a shame to allow this fairly benign act to ruin his career, and thus, we, here at seacapecod.net, wish him and his wife all the best, allowing for some healing to happen–bringing US all full circle so that we can get down to the real business of governing this great nation, that is in dire need of some real adults and, moreover, real leadership that does not rely on backstabbing and scandal. Have a wonderful day folks and stay cool, remembering to hydrate yourself, your brother and sister! PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
