I hate to see the Garden State afire. When I have visited I have always been impressed with the lush growth.

Those of us in Southern California and the rest of the west are fearing the summer since we had only 2-3 inches of rain over the past year. I am afraid the predictions of a very fiery summer may be correct.

What have we done to this planet? When are we going to stop pouring harmful materials into our atmosphere? When will the people of the U.S., and especially the elected officials realize that we are on the verge of causing the extinction of our way of life?
