Holiday preparations

Dawn on the Hudson

Dawn on the Hudson

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza— I wish you all— everyone of every persuasion— a healthy and joyful holiday season. Let’s remember those less fortunate than we, in particular, Sandy’s and Newtown’s victims.

Let’s resolve to work on the issues that enabled these disasters: stop the destruction of our natural coastal defenses and lower the emissions of greenhouse gases; work out gun safety regulations, pass a ban on assault weapons, see that disturbed youth receive the attention and care they need and examine what in American culture makes us so violent. That’s a big list and it’s not even complete, but it’s a beginning.

I won’t be able to post much until the New Year. I’ll be visiting family and friends without a computer. Until then, stay well.
