    Glad you posted this. Somehow I got wind of it last week and have used it as the subject matter of my up-coming September 1 letter to Rex … watch http://bit.ly/AutumnsFall weekly as we approach autumn. Summer Heat, Fearless Summer, Idle No More, Moccasins on the Ground,resistance of megaloads, tarsands, pipelines, fracking, offshore and Arctic drilling … all must urgently reach a crescendo in a sustained nexus that cannot be ignored.
