Earth Day! No comments yet.....well I guess we're all gassing up our vehicles to get there....It amazes me at how many people attend these events but what is more amazing is the reported greater numbers that attend the adjacent car show.....very flashy all those polished tailpipes are impressive, like trinkets to natives. I've never attended an Earth Day festival.... I identify greatly with what I read about Earth Day celebrations and the intent. So I do not want anyone to think that I don't agree. But I do think that with all the information available to us and also from what I have witnessed today suggests that we
have lost the environmental crusade.
