Aren't you proud to live in this country where 250,000 people can assemble in a peaceful protest? Not so proud of what Congress is trying to do? Contact your Senator and voice your opinions of this anti-immigrant law. The link is in the upper right-hand corner.

I'm sure my daughter and son-in-law found a way to watch the game even though we think it was about 4:30 in Tokyo.

Dear Daven & Lorna
We are having the time of our life here at Camp Buddy. Here we are in our playhouse with our counselor, Dan.
Here we are at nap time, camp keeps us very busy but we are lucky counselor Dan likes to nap.
We miss you and are being good campers but the food sux, same old stuff.

This pix is great; Bruins Arron Afflalo helps a distraught opponent. Boy, that says it all. They never gave up, even though they'd been down 17 points, and they still took time to be compassionate. Be proud coach Howland, you've done a fine job.

Feeling rather frustrated that I've not done enough I attended a candle-light vigil last night in Thousand Oaks to protest the war. It was pouring down rain and sadly only about 25 showed up but did meet some like-thinking-individuals and that made me feel better.
The vigil, on a very busy corner, did get some positive support from passersby and only one comment screamed from a passing car, "Go back to San Francisco you fucking homos." Now this did get a laugh from the group, so in a way, we needed that Ignoranus, a person who's both stupid and an asshole.
Tired of feeling frustrated? Find an organized protest in your area and excercise your First Amendment Rights before they are a thing of the past. United for Peace & Justice
Added March 23--for your edification. My sister has some great quotes from Tim Russert on her blog.

Sorry you're not with us anymore Crystal but wherever you are I know you've written and directed a play, sewed all the costumes--and made a great pot of red beans and rice for the after party.
Let the good times roll,

The following is an explanation from a great website called World's healthiest Foods
If you start to see red when you increase your consumption of beets, don't be alarmed. You're just experiencing beeturia, or a red or pink color to your urine or stool. No need to panic; the condition is harmless.

— The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
In a survey more people knew more characters in the Simpsons than they did freedoms protected by the First Amendment. If you can't remember what freedoms it protects then you won't know what you're missing if they take it away.
Now say this:
Now remember this:

Funny cartoon this morning from political cartoonist Tom Toles. Most people can't seem to see past this giant beast to realize that the GOP controls everything in this country right now and if we ignore it, the evil empire will continue to feed us just right amount of pablum, baby cereal for you younger people, to keep us fat, dumb and happy.
