Great interview with the Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein explaining the hows and whys of the recount effort.
Disappointed with Whoopi Goldberg at the end ambushing Stein with the falsity that she has done nothing over the last 4 years and not letting Stein have time to respond to explain Stein’s activism in the last 4 years and the media blackout up through the election, including from the The View.
We need to keep Whoopi Goldberg to her word and make sure that Stein is allowed back on The View to update them on what Stein has been doing.

Bob Dylan, the 2016 Nobel Prize winner in Literature has of course popped up in several ontheWilderside posts. It should be expected that we are Bob Dylan fans since one of the goals of this site is to support poetry and folk music. Our favorite Dylan post is from 10/24/2014:

Toxic rust tide spreads across Peconic estuary. Associated with: climate change; high nitrogen levels; runoff.
Toxic rust tide spreads across entire Peconic estuary, could be lethal
to estuary’s fish, marine life
Riverhead Local /
by Katie Blasl/ Aug 23, 2016
A dangerous algal bloom has spread across the Peconic Bay and all of its waterways at densities that have not been seen since 2012, when a similar bloom triggered a large die-off of scallops.
Rust tide has spread from East Hampton to Riverhead waterways over the past week, posing a threat to marine life in the Peconic, according to the Gobler Laboratory at Stony Brook University.
Rust tide algae, known as Cochlodinium, is more toxic and more dangerous to marine life than the red tide algae that triggered the historic bunker fish and turtle kills last summer…
“When we have extended summer heat as we have seen this summer, a heavy rust tide often follows,” he said.
He [Christopher Gobler, director of the Gobler Laboratory] added that his lab has identified climate change as a major factor in the frequency of harmful algal blooms in local waterways…
High levels of nitrogen in local waterways is a “second, equally important driving factor,” Gobler says…
