When America needed people to sail out on the uncharted seas, fight sea monsters, sit adrift for months at a time, risk shipwrecking, kill and eat each other, battle Micronesians, or perhaps even vanish in the Bermuda Triangle... yo, we got that. The whale is Earth's biggest creature... we hunt them, so well that you really have to look to see whales these days. Hurricanes and Nor'easters? We build our homes right in their path.
A foray into the appellate process in Superior Court is, by its very nature, an adversarial proposition. When people look to the judicial branch to seek relief, it is often characterized as “seeking clarification,” or “ironing out some wrinkles” related to a particular issue. The politicians and pundits can spin it any way they want. It’s a lawsuit, and when the town sues itself, it is rarely a good use of the peoples’ money.

Join Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT) Land Stewardship Intern Mike Brown on a walk off of the Cape Cod Rail Trail through pine-oak woods, wetland and former cranberry bogs to hear about the role cranberry bogs played in the history of the land.
Directions: From the intersection of Rt. 124 and Queen Anne Road, drive 0.8 mile west to the parking area on the south side of Queen Anne Road.
At first I thought my problem with Gabriel Gomez was his attempts to be funny which usually crashed into snarkiness.
I had some initial interest in him since the Republicans in Massachusetts spoke against him and freely pointed out his flaws, stressed he was inexperienced, and harped on his not coming across as very intelligent.
Conservative talk radio spoke about him as if he were a moron.
A SPECIAL WEEKEND
The coming weekend, Father's Day weekend, has special memories for me. Last year, on Father's Day, hundreds of people gathered in front of Colombo's Restaurant on Main Street in Hyannis. They came to participate in a Funeral March à la New Orleans style. I was at the top of the Melody Tent knoll with a video camera when this multitude approached the Melody Tent where Dick Golden presided over a concert in Lou Colombo's honor.
As anyone that reads my blog already knows, I am passionate about education. It's important, not just for the kids, but for our society.
Like many of my friends, I thought it was an over-reaction to something that could be better dealt with if reason was applied as opposed to emotion. But, we all had to be uber-patriotic in the days after 9/11, and anyone who expressed any reluctance to hold off and think things through was considered, somehow, anti-American.
It would appear that we have just lost our ability to call any politician we do not like "Hitler", even when the name is misused horribly just to make a quick, albeit, incorrect comparison like claiming that while Obama is a "socialist" he is also Adolph Hitler.
Several Warnings In Place...
A June nor'easter is moving through the region, but the worst should be over by noon or so.
We have a few weather warnings in place from the NWS, including Gale, High Wind and High Surf. It will be very rainy through noon, and very windy through the evening.
