Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, calm, cool island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this glorious Monday morning, the 30th day of April, 2012, another stunner on Cape, with the sun slowly rising over a forest that leads one down the Ancient Path to a little bay nestled in the off the beaten track Old Cape town of Cotuit, ‘where the ocean meets the wood’, giving rise to hope for mankind, those aforementioned forests and all the woodland and marine animals WE share this great blue rock called EARTH with day in and day out… Of course, I could be wrong.  The fine MSNBC morning news show, “Morning Joe”, 6-9 a.m., starting with “Way too early, with Willie Geist”, 5:30-6 a.m., eastern, did not have Henry David Thoreau on their minds at the six o’clock hour, no sir, their focus was on the White House Correspondents Dinner, a traditional dinner held in Washington D.C. every year for the press/politicians/celebrities, really all one in the same, this past Saturday night (98th  year in a row now, I think) hosted by that very same ‘lean forward’ pinko station of MSNBC, where Mika, Joe, cast and crew showed clips from the highlights of levity that is so sorely missing in our daily dialogue, forgoing it for the grim ‘news’ of the day, promoted by corporate owned airwaves that saturate US daily with violence, trigger happy drug busts, riots, you name it, while forgetting about the good that IS going on simultaneously, good that wins out in the end.  News that sells, rather than a medium that informs with FACTS, you know, Knowledge and such!  Should that not be the REAL story, media moguls of the world?  Bill Moyers, (whose award winning, wait for it, new show “Bill Moyers and Company”, only on PBS-Sundays-please Google your local listings, truly a MUST SEA), had, as his guest on this past Sunday’s show, Marty Kaplan, Director of USC’s Norman Lear Center, who gave perhaps the most insightful view into what is truly going on in this nation and indeed around the globe, while WE collectively close our eyes to what any five year old can most clearly grasp–namely, the largest corporate entities on planet earth have HIJACKED our democracy, with that little ‘d’, and thus, it is up to US, the citizens of this great land, to take it back, per the directive of our Forefather’s who fought this kind of tyranny 236 years ago.  Marty contends they have done this by brainwashing the public and dumbing it down at the same time–mostly, by turning the news business into the entertainment business, blurring the distinction of what is truly FLUFF and what is truly important, EMPIRICAL information EVERYONE is entitled to in a free and FAIR democracy.  Asking the question of Apple or any other corporate giant, is it fair to rake in huge profits and not pay a FAIR tax rate? Same question applies to you Mr. Romney!  Look to May first, tomorrow, to see the reappearance of the OCCUPY movement, an idea rather than a cause, that will germinate into a REAL grass roots forward leaning ‘agenda’ that serves the MAJORITY of her citizenry rather than only a tiny, very secretive and powerful, group that has abused that privilege by hog tying the congress, the judiciary and attempting the same on the Executive.  Good Luck storming the castle boys!
