I am astounded that so many people are reading this blog and from so many far away places.

We have a lot of Islanders reading about the DSP cutbacks, and one special friend and ex-Islander in Saskatchewan. Other readers are in Ohio, Ontario, California, Georgia, and Florida.

Around the world, you are in New Zealand, China, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Jordan, Poland, France, England, the Netherlands, Chile and Brazil.

Thank you for your support. I hope your holidays are going well.

Drop a note to give me your thoughts, comments or criticism. And please pass the link on to spread the word.

We have hope. We can turn this thing around. The government will respond to negative public pressure. Who wants to be seen stealing from people in wheelchairs?
