Two important quotes from Martin Luther King should guide us in knowing what is right. "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective." We all live downstream. Pollution knows no boundaries.

Enjoyed chatting with Mr. Pelton. Thank you for your interest in this ongoing campaign. We must work to enlighten all of our citizens in order to preserve a precious way of life. The best things in life are free ( water, air, tranquility). They must be defended with diligence.

This activism is vital to an ongoing improvement in both air and water quality for the Chesapeake Bay watershed area. Sadly, if we were really doing the job of developing alternative, **clean** energy sources then there would be employment opportunities available for those citizens who lose out when we eliminate coal as a major energy fuel source.

We need, therefore, as much activism toward both industry and government to "get with it" in finding and producing reliable alternate energy resources. This is not an easy task and major petroleum and natural gas producers as well as other special interests exercise money charm to sway political action on this issue.

Realizing this and the tough demands on activists makes me appreciate even more every effort that environmentalists make to help clean up the bay in all respects. It is so easy to get tired, discouraged, and depressed that all of us need to stand up and cheer for all enviro efforts on behalf of the bay and this entire planet.

Thanks everyone for your comments -- and it was a pleasure to meet you, too, Jeanne!

Step back and think about the big picture and the quality of life in the beautiful farmland of southeast Virginia. Is this going to be enhanced by a massive coal-fired power plant, and huge coal waste landfills, and tons of soot and toxics released into the air?

I don't think so. Nor do I think that property values, or the economy outside of the plant itself, will be enhanced. Few are going to want to live or open up businesses next to a coal-fired power plant.

Tropic plants love hiumdity, you need to put a few rocks between bottom of the planter and between the water catch all plate, bigger than the plant vase! Add water down into that area, not to be sucked up by the roots. If to close to the window now in the winter time, cold temperture may be killing it.Find its accurate dirt ph level its supposed to be at. Find the best book at the local library or here online. Maybe at times you should of put a large enough bag over it with some air in the bag put in sunshine for an hour or so, for more hiumdity to build it up. Don't over heat this way. Short time fix! Bugs may have been in dirt all along, and layed the larvae that ate the roots. So now plants is dying. Put whole thing in garbage bag like Glad bag wrap it up, twist into a tie and toss it, so all bugs die and don't breed, and infect other natural floral in your state of residents. Stick to normal household plants, good for your area!

You know plants were not made to grow insdie, really. Nothing is native to indoors I have been a landscaper for 14 years and I have trouble with houseplants. I can only grow them if they are IN a window. And my availabilty of windows is on the north side. I water my plants once a week. That is I take them to the sink, fill them up with water and let them drain there. And I spritz them with water from a spray bottle. After they've drained I take them back to their saucer in the window. NEVER plant in those pots that have saucers attached! They are terrible. Mine are in about 6 inch to 8 inch pots. Larger pots will not need water as often as they don't dry out so quickly. Whatever bug you have, take the plant outside and spray it with a safer soapy insecticide thoroughly. Let it dry and bring it back. Good luck
