“But the Coalition Against the Rockaway Pipeline and other critics point to Williams’s safety record and express concerns about a possible explosion in a national park or in a densely packed neighborhood. Since 2008, the company’s pipelines have had accidents — including leaks, ruptures and explosions — in at least seven states. The company and its subsidiaries faced “corrective action orders” from the government in two cases, including a pipeline explosion in Alabama last year, and fines in two others. A company spokesman said that all the issues raised by the accidents had been addressed.”

We gave a ride to a neighbor and fellow volunteer that had walked 40 blocks to be with us. Suddenly, we found ourselves behind a Homeland Security armored vehicle parked on the middle of the street. Men in military uniforms and bulletproof vests climbed out holding long rifles and surrounded a group of three young black males. The guys put down the cans they were holding, put up their hands and smirked. The four women in our car looked on horrified, and I pulled out my cell phone camera as fast as I could, only to be confronted by one of the men in uniform. “There’s been looting”, he said, and I realized he was the first government official of any kind I’d seen outside of a vehicle today. Everyone else had been guarding a gas station or a cell-phone recharging generator. We were shaking with anger, and were instructed to move on.
Today, in Rockaway.
Anyone holding a can isn’t looting, they’re surviving. We need food distribution more than we need militarized protection of someone’s big screen televisions.

Grant & some friends of Army Navy.

$500 reward for finding my friend’s lost chihuahua. Last seen in Greenpoint Brooklyn near McGolrick Park.
Her name is Myrtle. She may be wearing a bright, light-reflective collar.
This is Brooklyn. She is 11 years old and likes to do her own makeup and wear it out whenever she feels like it.
Brooklyn is awesome.
