Just a truly fine show–an enjoyable conversation with two environmental stewards, talking about things they have done and are doing–and how you can be a part.  A key issue right now is the excavation removal of the dioxin pits IN the San Jacinto River, but that is only one of a related host of issues–ranging from local control and our county’s familiarity with and its right to sue polluters, to marches from Vietnam to now, to this time of change and individual opportunity for involvement right where you and your environment live.
