I value and appreciate Ms. Stern's work. On World Water Day we have concerns that hit us close to home. Our clean, pure NYC tap water can not be taken for granted. It is now threatened by proposed natural gas drilling upstate which could contaminate the supply. (www.waterunderattack.com) This Sunday from 2-4pm, Green Party mayoral candidate Reverend Billy Talen will gather with NYC citizens at the Christopher St. Pier for a picnic and mass blessing of our precious city tap water to say "yes" to clean water and "no" to massive contamination and the privatization of our commons. Meet at the Christopher Street Pier at the end of Christopher Street by the Hudson River.

I volunteer to run a monthly documentary film series at the Nyack Library. Two months ago we showed Amy Hart's award-winning and moving film "Water First". In addition to public health benefits, local water wells keep young women in school making their lives more valuable to thier societies and reducing population growth: real feminist goals! Contact www.bullfrogfilms.com to obtain a showing license [or to purchase the film]. Contact me if you want more information:

What about sanitation??

Wouldn't clean water be more readily available if there was proper waste disposal and sanitation??
