Well over a year ago, I set up a page (?) on facebook at the request of some former college classmates who were planning a reunion. I think I've been back once or twice since then.
I never quite understood the attraction or the power of that social networking site...until yesterday. I blew through all previous one-day traffic records for this blog, and most of the new visitors were referred through some feature of facebook that I still haven't figured out. And I'd be remiss if I didn't comment that most seemed to be, ummm, facing while at work.
Anyway, the word on Gas Stock is definitely out, and I once again ask that everyone try to support this event in any way you can. I am not in any way affiliated with these folks, but it's a great idea for an even greater cause and it's about time we massed together as one to save PA from the onslaught of BIG OIL; something our elected "leaders" seem unable or unwilling to do.
I'm thinking of doing a 13 mile walk from the Susquehanna River @ Nesbitt Park to the Luzerne County Fairgrounds beginning at sunrise on 8/21 to raise awareness and funds for the event. I need a catchy ( but brief and to the point ) name for my walk...and am offering two free "Don't Tread on Me" T-shirts to the best idea submitted & selected.
Walking for Change. Walking for Our Waters. You get the idea.
