"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.

Off to Alaska! Tonight brother Michael and I, as a fitting end to this Hollywood journey, attended Ringo Starr's Hollywood Star dedication ceremony outside Capitol Records and were briefly interviewed by Woodstock's Sweetwater on TV talking about how Ringo's Peace and Love musical mission inspired our own Circus Guy Musical Goodwill Ambassador Program with the State Dept. to the Middle East. You da man, Ringo!
