In the Shadow of the Moon

OK, so its been a long time since I posted. Neither the men or women Tarheels won the NCAA championship. The Hurricanes didn't make the playoffs. Its spring and the weather is glorious.

I went to Washington D.C. with my daughter and some of her friends to see Lily Allen, who is just great.

And I went to the Full Frame documentary film festival and saw "In the Shadow of the Moon."

This is a documentary that is almost completed about the men who have walked on the moon. It is fabulous -- great interviews with the surviving astronauts (except Neil Armstrong who doesn't do interviews) and absolutely incredible footage. Its truly amazing. The filmmaker said it should have a theatrical release this fall with the DVD coming out in early 2008. Discovery Channel is in on this, so hopefully it will also be broadcast.

I also started reading the Pulitzer winner "The Race Beat" about the reporters who covered the Civil Rights Movement. Fascinating story.

It's no wonder you post so seldom; You have nothing to say.

I don't post much because I work a lot. What do you do with that feeble mind of yours? Asshole.

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw an article describing each candidate’s stance on global warming and climate change on earthlab.com http://www.earthlab.com/articles/PresidentialCandidates.aspx . So obviously they care about it. Is it the Medias fault for not asking the right questions or is it the candidates’ fault for not highlighting the right platforms? Does anyone know of other websites or articles that touch on this subject and candidates’ views? This is the biggest problem of the century and for generations to come…you would think the next president of the United States would be more vocal about it.

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually do much for Earth Day but with everyone going green these days, I thought I’d try to do my part.

I am trying to find easy, simple things I can do to help stop global warming (I don’t plan on buying a hybrid). Has anyone seen that EarthLab.com is promoting their Earth Day (month) challenge, with the goal to get 1 million people to take their carbon footprint test in April?... I took the test, it was easy and only took me about 2 minutes and I am planning on lowering my score with some of their tips.

I am looking for more easy fun stuff to do. If you know of any other sites worth my time let me know.
