Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, cool, less windy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, seven a.m., February 26th, 2012, a beautiful one on Cape, as this reporter, predicted to Thompson-Reuters, witnessed a spectacular sunrise that lifted more than just the day, it lifted a few spirits as well. Yesterday the Cape and islands experienced wicked winds coming out of the northwest, gusts upwards of 63 m.p.h.–thankfully no damage to report. The Sunday morning talk shows will begin in less than an hour from “NOW’ (with Alex Wagner, week days at high noon, only on MSNBC), with the pundits flappin’ their gums regarding everything from the tensions in Iran, Syria and gas prices, to the republican nomination process, culture wars, women’s rights, and illegal immigration, just to name a few, as we all sit back and watch what will happen next, something that none of us really know anyhow, except Thompson-Reuters of course. The smart Irish money is still on Mitt Romney to win the republican nomination, even if Rick Santorum wins the Michigan primary on Tuesday, home state, of course, to Mitt, who still ‘pines’, sorry about that, for the trees of that fine state, trees that are always the right height, as WE all know by now, from Dearborn to Mackinac Island, driving around in that old Mustang, singing songs that still had ‘…old salt that soothed my soul’ (credit Tom Cruise and the classic film, “Risky Business”, circa 1983), “wonderin’ where is great big world gonna take me…?”. The main problem with this ‘plan’ however, of residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Mitt old boy, is the fact that breaking down companies for your own, and your partners, personal gain (private equity firm of Bain Capital, yes?), is not what this country needs right now ‘experience’ wise, for who would REALLY believe you would not take this country backwards, evoking the some of the same principals exercised by the Bush administration that got US into this mess in the first place? In fact, former President George W. Bush looks quite moderate compared to what you might do regarding regulations that curb corrupt behavior that only hurts the majority of the ‘American People’ (credit Mitch McConnell, R-KY), people that you claim, per yesterday’s speech in Detroit, you care ‘deeply’ about. Hats off to Jeb Bush, W’s brother, who stated for all the world to hear recently that WE, and I paraphrase here, ’should stop this fear mongering and get on with the helping of our brothers and sisters of America’, the true core of his message, a real statement that actually proves some of these guys, of whom I have friends on the ‘other side’ of the aisle, have a heart. For it is refreshing to KNOW that not all republicans have lost their minds, as they claim the mantle of small government while they climb into your bed and tell you what you should and should not do. Give US a break Rick, you are not “God in chief”, nor is any human being for that matter, and the Pope that you and I recognize recently said this of your foolish statement regarding this ‘phony theology’ of being a steward of the environment, well, he did not address you personally, but did point to the FACT that we all have stake in this, and those who do care about our little blue rock called earth will forever be on the side of our kids and our grand kids, who WILL look in wonder someday at the Galapagos tortoises, the dancing dolphins, and the Great Blue Heron and sigh, stating, thank God someone cared enough to share this for future generations. It’s not all politics gentlemen! Have a nice day folks and may I suggest, turning on Turner Classic Movies, on this Oscar Sunday, you may just be surprised at some of the classic films you will discover, such as Bing Crosby in “Going My Way”, circa 1944, a story of a young, Catholic Priest who changed more than just a few lives, he, “Father O’Malley” used the power of music to restore LOVE where there once was none. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
