a Neil Capolongo film As a young blind boy, Vinny St. Marten grew up at a time when racism and prejudice were considered to be an acceptable part of everyday life. As a teenager, he had a life-changing experience that showed him how wrong this was. In her online review of "Think About It," Vivian Fields of Midnight Jazz says, "The track, part spoken-word diary, part classic soul, cuts deep; the emotionally reflective piano gives it a cinematic backdrop, and this is probably the best use of Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream ' speech ever."

On Saturday morning, 6-Oct-2007, at about 7:40 AM, Eastman Kodak razed two more buildings at their Rochester NY Kodak Park manufacturing headquarters. These were the last two in a series of unwanted buildings razed via explosive demolition. Thousands of past and present Kodak employees, and other members of the community watched from nearby parking lots or other vantage points beyond the designated safety zone. Those viewing from positions north of the implosion were forced to seek shelter from the billowing cloud of thick dust that quickly moved from the site and spread across adjoining neighborhoods.
