By on 6.12.06 | 2:01PM

The emcee here just said, "Don't talk to me about choosing between jobs or the environment. It's jobs for the environment."

Yes, but will the environment be paid a living wage? It's time to organize, methinks. Rocks, dirt and trees, should all start voting for the big Ds.

He's also quoting JFK's famous speech--"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard"--to press for a new energy independence "Apollo Program." But hard like what? Hard like going to see the new Al Gore movie? Or hard like bringing democracy to a totalitarian society? I think we're starting to recognize our limits.
