Let's start with the good, the latest pictures by James R. Holland  from the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge on the northern end of McIntosh County.

The Gang's all here:

The bad and the ugly over the hump.

If you haven't heard about the Spit controversy before, see here and here and here.

Now there's a video update from James Holland, whose pictures have garnered widespread attention:

Longer running is the Rayonier saga of polluting the Altamaha River from Jesup to the coast. It's a story that reminds us that the line about "teaching a man to fish" is really mean, considering that all over the globe industrial pollution has made fish unfit to eat.

You'd think the Sea Island resort people would have an interest in providing their guests with edible fish. But, it seems all sectors of U.S. enterprise have been taken over by people aiming to exploit our resources, both human and natural. The ex-men have got the upper hand and that's what we've got to change. Installing Democrats in our state houses and governors' slots will make a start.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
