DISAPPEARING ISLAND (video)

Manhattan, where we live, is an island that is NOT disappearing -- it's crowded, and crowding in around us more than ever -- the city budget is hugely over- extended and much needed services are getting cut ...

And the giant island -- our hemisphere, surrounded by water -- whew, wow -- we're not safe, the world is crowded, crowding in around us -- money worries, the costs of fixing so many things that are going wrong, plus the oil spill. Every day the number of gallons is larger. This morning I thought the reporter said "A million gallons." I asked JC "What did he say?" JC thought he'd heard the same thing.

Here we are, three weeks before the oil spill began, discussing a tiny island, not sure why its disappearance makes us feel unsafe, fearful.
