Green Times 18

Hmmmm...

I was just thumbing through the transcript of Monroe County Executive Maggie Brook's State of the County address, and I counted 18 "greens." I did not count the number of times she said "sustainable,"" renewable," or "clean."

So, I'm left wondering...is Monroe County really a leader when it comes to being green? Or are we just on that green wagon, trying to look greener than everyone else? Is this political "greenology" or the real thing?

Forget the Silver Lining

The word "greenology" has not made it into any dictionary yet, but I'm guessing it's only a matter of time. Google it. It's already becoming a cliche on the World Wide Web.

There are greenology sites that explain all things green, and there are a number of businesses jumping on the green wagon by calling themselves names like Greenology Plant Care. My favorite is a link to a t-shirt:

Greenology could also become a political approach that could be used when the economy is lousy, the budget is in the red, your favored projects appear to be flailing, you've lost a lawsuit, and controversy surrounds several recent actions taken by local lawmakers belonging to your political party.

Brooks & Duffy (aka Dead Air, Part Two)

Maybe it's the season. Maybe it's the fact I've already gotten into the eggnog. Whatever it is, I refused to become stressed over the fact I still had a program full of dead air as of 3 p.m. today.

(Actually, it's because I had a backup program recorded - just in case. But that sounds so boring.)

The good news is, I won't be using that recorded program until after Christmas.

Both Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy and Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks will be here tomorrow to talk about economic development in downtown Rochester.
