Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the warm, soon to be thunderous, once again, island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this 10th day of August, 2012, a day of transition here on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the “LAST GREAT ICE AGE”, something to perhaps take in, for as the ice melts in the polar regions of the North Pole, as well as Greenland, Antarctica, not to mention the glaciers in the Himalayas, well, I think it might begin to dawn on ya that, hmmmmm, maybe, just maybe, this ‘global warming hoax’ (credit Senator James Inhofe, R-OK), is not a joke after all, in FACT, it is happening right in front of our “Ostrich eyes”… Leaving that aside for the ‘time being’, may I offer you a quote from the great “Last Lion of the Senate”, the late, great Edward M. Kennedy, “Teddy”, who lived in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, but enjoyed this fair town of Cotuit, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, on occasion. A place where he, and his wonderful brother, and 35th President of the United States, found respite from the trials and tribulations of the nasty world of politics.  In his book, “True Compass”, a must read by the way if you want to KNOW anything about OUR American history, he speaks (page 398), of what a ‘man’ like “Mitt” Romney (republican presumptive nominee) would, figuratively speaking of course, do if he were, GOD FORBID, to become President of the United States of America.  And I quote Teddy… ” The real transgression occurs when religion wants government to tell citizens how to live uniquely personal parts of their lives. In cases such as Prohibition or abortion, the proper role of religion is to appeal to the conscience of the individual, not the coercive power of the state.  ‘But there are other questions which are inherently public in nature, which we must decide together as a nation, and where religion and religious values can and should speak to our common conscience….  The issue of nuclear war is a compelling example.  To take a stand…when a question is properly public and truly moral is to stand in a long and honored tradition.’  I cited the evangalists of the 1800s who were in the forefront of the abolitionist movement;  the Reverend William Sloane Coffin, who challenged the morality of war in Vietnam; Pope John XXIII, whom renewed the Gospel’s call to social JUSTICE. And Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was the greatest prophet of this century, awakened OUR nation and it’s conscience  to the evil of racial segregation.”  I don’t know about you, but as this election, a pivotal election, gets closer to the goal posts, an election that will either take this country BACKWARDS or FORWARDS, well, perhaps we should get a look at those ‘tax’ returns, or lack therein, and SEA what the heck is REALLY going on.  Have a nice day and remember to register to VOTE.  It is your right and duty, not for the politics of it all–but for your brothers, your sisters, your mom, your dad, your grandma, your grandpa, your son, or your daughter…  Have a wonderful weekend folks and may the spirit of a power much greater than ‘ourselves’ be with this super nation forever!     PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
