There’s so much to do  in the world, I can hardly keep up with sharing the news… So, here are some (somewhat vague) mentions of things happening in the LI/NYC area over the next week that might heal the world and shift the Ch’i:

LI Dem Electeds Support Nuclear Power

Plum Island: Moving it good or bad and will it happen?

KW: Plum Island, a small island off the coast of Long Island, is an animal research center that the federal government operates. It is difficult to decide if closing it, cleaning it up, and moving it to Kansas would be good or bad. And, that means: Would it be good or bad for Long Island […]
