This is my new Silver Spring voice

A wine-hazed view opened our eyes
And all of the other dire news of the world
A dairy cow slaughter plant in Chino, California
The infrastructure in our cities and towns
Brings diverse people together to create a successful, multicultural
     community for everyone
Elsewhere, a multi-group coalition of students led a raucous anti-war
Come check out the environmental and kid-friendly activities
Affordable housing stock becomes even more critical due to current
     fiscal challenges
I think to myself that gluttony has gotten a bum rap
Put me to work for you on a personalized market analysis of your
Green beer and good cheer at McGinty's
Good sized lot for gardening
Seventy-nine years later, memories of the tornado were still vivid
Only three homes remain from this old neighborhood
A traditional coffee ceremony, music and food created a multisensory
     cultural experience
On Sunday nights, it becomes "Queery House"
I love that the floors are warped and the windows are crooked
I looked at tons and tons of lithographs to get ideas
But Diane is no bandwagon jumper
Our lives are filled with many things that we certainly don't need
The forces of corporate greed, government inertia, rapacious real
     estate development, rampant industrial pollution, and a
     large population struggling with poverty and inequity
Volunteers will receive a free 2008 Earth Day t-shirt
The Pizza Palace will reopen as Halal-friendly Pizza Roma
She will, of course, have her own t-shirt
We support families and enhance the healthy development of children
But do consider revisiting your dosage levels
The one who stands by his or her country in crisis -- that is the winter
The health benefits of each style of movement are wide-ranging
The network is ideal for both recreational users and commuters
Summer is coming...will you be ready?
Wash your hands and hair frequently and give yourself lots of
     antioxidants though
Let food br thy medicine
It was noon when we got back to the top
It can run on donuts, asparagus and pizza
Together, a room full of wquipment is ready just for you
Organic, gourmet, fair trade coffee, sugar-free gelato, pastries,
     sandwiches and more
Put on your dancing shoes
Meet live animals and help feed them
How can we properly prepare for what we cannot imagine?
Your school-aged son or daughter is already old enough to need
     more than a schmeer of Judaism
Love your Mother Earth
Middle schoolers who have pre-read book only
We will work on a sliding scale, just ask
Europe seems more distant than ever
33 years of experience in immigration law
Too bad more chefs aren't using them
The frogs were beginning to call out to each other in some
     unseen vernal pool
People often don't realize how destructive it can be
