Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the rather balmy, clearing island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Wednesday morning, the thirtieth day of January, 2013, a mild one at that, as the yo-yo that has become our weather pattern here and around the world just keeps getting stranger and stranger by the day. I just got off the phone with the “Nantucket Chronicle”, a sight I would highly recommend if you plan on visiting that fine island, and spoke with a nice lady named Georgia who also knows of the great new station on said island, 97.7 ACK FM, “the future of Rock and Roll”, and my favorite DJ Sandy Walsh–you guys are the best! Sorry for that shameless plug, but, in all earnestness, they deserve it. Well, John Kerry, now former Senator from this fair state of Massachusetts, was confirmed overwhelmingly by the Senate yesterday in a 94-3 vote, casting some LIGHT on what will hopefully be the same result for Chuck Hagel, who has been nominated for the position of Secretary of Defense. Chuck served in Vietnam and is a well qualified candidate as he was also a Senator who did well by his constituents. Good Luck sir! Of course, the conversation has turned back to immigration and perhaps the right wing fringe is once again out on a limb on this one, for it seems there may actually be some bi-partisan olive branches being thrown about, with Senator John McCain standing with President Obama on many of the issues facing this most contentious problem in this great nation. With over 11 million undocumented ‘aliens’ here on U.S. soil, people who live, work, raise their families and contribute to our society, it is high time we act on this NOW. For the FACTS are that this country IS a nation of immigrants and who are WE to stand in the way of history? From Ireland, Italy, and indeed Africa, we are ALL one under the umbrella that is that statue of Liberty on Ellis Island in New York, and WE will take those huddled masses, especially the one’s that are already here and embrace them, for that is the American WAY, a way forged by some brave souls who freed this country from tyranny 237 years ago. Have a wonderful day folks and thanks for tuning in, it is an honor and a privilege. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
