Once again, we find ourselves facing another Monday. I have to confess that I was mighty torn over what to write today. ICYMI, there was quite a discussion of gas prices and energy policy toward the end of last week given the all too familiar climb in gas prices. In response, the President gave a speech in discussing his all-of-above energy policy and making sure folks know that they are being lied to when people (cough, congressional Republicans and Republican presidential candidates) say we can drill our way out of the prices at the pump.
As you all know at this point, I have a high tolerance and almost sickeningly love of “same old, same old” given my affection for that legislative body we call Congress. But today, I just couldn’t muster the strength to torture you into feeling the same way.
Hence, I’m venturing onto a local topic and source of excitement–the DC Environmental Film Festival. No, I’m not talking about The Lorax (although, for those spinach munchers who have seen, please share your takes!). I’m talking about the once-a-year celebration of environmental entertainment that provides a wholesome feast for us spinach lovers. This year, it starts on March 13 and wraps on March 25. Featuring films such as Aral: The Lost Sea, Arctic Cliffhanger, and the world premiere of Beyond Pollution, a firsthand investigation into the blowout of BP’s Macando well, it is sure to once again satisfy appetites in a city largely known for a contributing to a deprivation of green fodder.
Friends in the DC area, let us know which ones you think look like a good spinach fix. We’re thinking of taking a break from providing you with your daily delight to picnic and pick up some of our own.
