Who knew? I don’t hear the people in the Glades upset about this?
Sitting this morning listening to WPTV Michael Williams talk to Eric Eikenberg from the Everglades Foundation.
Sitting here in happiness as we inch closer to an agreement with the legislature to build a reservoir south of the lake. Eric is confident that this is going to happen. Yay. Other people have told me privately they are confident that this is going to happen. Michael brings up Amendment 1 that we all voted for. I just sit here and pray.
Eric talks about how this was passed 17 years ago. No one is attacking agriculture. He reminds us that big sugar wanted to sell this land a few years ago. He reminds us that we need this reservoir. The water must go down to the Florida Keys as mother nature intended or she wouldn’t have made it that way.

Hasan Minhaj at 2016 WHCD Dinner
Last night Hasan Minhaj from the Daily Show spoke at the #nerdprom.

Attention to all my film friends: Can you help us Save the Indian River Lagoon:
I miss all the fun.
This was the add on Facebook that was posted by a person named Karen Donahue who apparently was on her way to Michigan later that night. Probably to her new job at Fox News or some kind of great payola for selling her friends down the filthy, dirty, polluted river last week at South Florida Water Management. When I checked her out on Facebook we had 50 or so of the same friends. Since we have many mutual friends in the film industry who have watched me post about this issue for the last three years I’m sure they were quite surprised that one of their own basically screwed them and intentionally used them in a protest to hurt the Everglades.

I love Hanukkah because it’s the holiday of miracles and lights. Light conveys both an absence of darkness and a quality that will help us to see — and understand — more clearly.…
