23. What I find interesting

is that, in going door-to-door, the registered republicans that I encounter recognize environmental issues as being extremely important. It's hard for me to square that up with their tendency to vote for corporate republicans, who are invested in exploiting that environment for immediate financial gratification.

Still, as we've discussed, in the past two years, I've helped engineer a five-for-five record for elections in that town. The new democratic majority was put in place with the help of registered republican voters.

In the next 7 to 10 days, I'll be posting (with links to newspaper & television news reports) about attempts by the Town Board's "tea party" minority to disrupt and derail the majority's efforts to protect the community from hydrofracking. (The media coordination is merely another task that I've assigned to myself!)
