Global Works Day: What Are You Planting?

By: Sunday October 10, 2010 6:45 am

Today is a worldwide action day to combat climate change; October 10th is designated as the date for a Global Work Party. Happily for me, it is a bright warm fall day, perfect for planting. I have seeds ready to go into my garden, on a day just before rain is predicted. There are buckets out to catch the rain, for watering. Although it will be almost 90F, there will not be air conditioning in my house, which has lots of shade trees keeping it cool. To get to my garden, I will walk, not drive.

By: Sunday October 10, 2010 2:00 am

Today we have the CT Senate race (ABC) and the IL Senate race (NBC). Michael Hayden creeps up crops up on CNN, where we also have midterm pollsters. (Lordy, I wonder if there’s a fund for the treatment of Tweety’s Hillary obsession.) 60 Minutes features “Speed Traders,” look for masaccio’s take on that in a bit. Expect a lively discussion during Book Salon today, Joe Trippi will be here for Ari Berman’s “Herding Donkeys: The Fight to Rebuild the Democratic Party and Reshape American Politics.” And it is 10/10/10, find an event near you.
