Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Saturday morning, the slow “news” day of the week, the eighteenth day of December, 2010, one week before Christmas. I pray you and yours are doing well, although many, in our great country, are not. A follow up to the John Stewart show, rather the “Daily Show”, although WE all know, remains the HOUSE that JOHN built forever, regards the only credible station still on the air–MSNBC. The good folks at that station, and I will name them by name, starting with Mr. Keith Olbermann, then moving to the very great and courageous Rachel Maddow, the equally reverent and intelligent Lawrence O’Donnell, Savannah Guthrie of the “Daily Rundown”, Ed Shultz, of the “ED SHOW”, who IS a real American Hero, and finally to the good folks at “Morning Joe”, with Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, (not to mention the great contributors, such as Mike Barnacle, Willie Geist, and the great political analyst Chuck Todd) have done US all a great service, by providing REAL reporting that holds the line, as in a football game, and keeps it REAL, so that this nation, those not ASLEEP, can take those FACTS and make up their own mind as to what is right and what is WRONG. I was watching Keith’s show, “Countdown, with Keith Olbermann”, only on MSNBC, airing every week night at 8, 11 p.m., and for those who stay up late, 2 a.m., last night and, filling in for Keith, was the very great Chris Hayes of the Nation Magazine, a MUST READ, who re-iterated what John was saying about the TRAVESTY of the republican party’s FAILURE to pass a measly 5 million dollar health/LIFE bill for the HEROES of 911, who are sick now because of their efforts to save as many lives as they could on that very dark day in our nation’s history. Again, for all of us, SHAME ON YOU REPUBLICORP! You have once again proved yourself, as an organization, that you are, and, I will plagiarize, with permission, Keith’s words, the “Worst Persons in the WORLD!”… and, I don’t mean (NOT REALLY). We have seen the suffering in this grand nation of ours, and as the rich get richer, we see the letters going to Santa to the Chicago post office, heartbreaking letters from people with children, wives, grandmothers, real Marines and every other person you can think of whom they may love, whose only wish this Christmas, in the year of our LORD, 2010, is food, clothes and, in one case, a blanket for their grandmother, who is taking care of a little girl while their mother, only 33, lies paralyzed for she was hit by a train…presumably going to a slave job that pays her 7 bucks an hour. If you want to contribute to that cause, as did those great people I just mentioned (to the tune of 10,000 dollars), you can log on to COUNTDOWN.MSNBC.COM and think about, really think about, what the Christmas season REALLY means and indeed what it IS all about. So, have a wonderful day everybody and if you don’t have the money to give to that cause, you can always go out of your house, look around, and see if someone out there is hungry, or is in need of a blanket, and just say, here. I love you people. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
