Earth Day 1970

I attended the first Earth Day observation in Philadelphia.  I remember that poet Allen Ginsberg and Ed Muskie were among the speakers.  Muskie, who was the Democratic vice-presidential candidate in 1968, was the favorite for the 1972 presidential nomination at that point.  Redbone, a Native American band, performed.

Here are articles about it.

Poor media coverage of the search of Trump’s property

The media coverage has been bad.

  1. The FBI isn’t going to say anything so we only hear from Trump and his cult members
  2. The cable networks need to fill time so they are filling it with endless speculation. Let’s try to be patient and wait for the facts
  3. As usual, the media is giving excess coverage to Trump. This is limiting coverage of Biden’s recent accomplishments. It’s obvious that Biden wasn’t in on this because reduced coverage of his actions is bad for him.
