Just So You Know...

My Sister just sent this to me, from Seattle.  We should all be aware that we ARE getting something accomplished.  We can and are removing the blinders.  This is from the same group that went through all that brouhaha a couple of years ago over such messages that were purchased to be displayed on city busses. Please go to their site and help keep this kind of thing out there.
Hang on to the seat of your pants, Seattle...there's about to be another kosher shit-storm coming over this.

For your edification; Rachel Corrie was from the State of Washington.  I think her murder is a wound that never healed there...and that's a good thing.  Just thought I would pass this along to you folks to let you know to keep pushing...we'll get there.

Rachel Corrie speaks so eloquently here, a mere 5th grader, who turns out to be so much more if anyone cares to listen...
"I'm here for other children. I'm here because I care. I'm here because children everywhere are suffering.
And because 40,000 people die each day from hunger. And I'm here because those people are mostly children.
We have got to understand that the poor are all around us, and we're ignoring them.
We have got to understand that these deaths are preventable!
We have got to understand that people in third world countries think and care and smile just like us.
We have got to understand that they are us, we are them.
My dream is to stop hunger by the year 2000. My dream is to give the poor a chance.
My dream is to save the 40,000 people who die each day.
My dream can and will come true, if we all look into the future and see the light that shines there".

There's nothing I can say here but that millions of soldiers may have died in vain, but not Rachel Corrie!

Wow, speechless!

I mis-typed the link into my browser so it searched for 30 billion instead. A healthy number of sites indeed. I'll be back when I've visited a number of them... I may be some time.

Peace, JSTR

Penn State Has Exemption From Disclosure Law

"When the wide-ranging overhaul of the state’s open records provisions was made three years ago, however, exemptions were included. Practically none of the revisions pertain to Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, Temple University and Lincoln University, which have a special state-related status in Pennsylvania because they receive public financing but maintain independent administrative control".

Good people in Seattle!

Timster said...

Marigold - Well put! She didn't.

Timster said...

Jester - Copy and paste, dude.

Timster said...

argh - I too am speechless.

Timster said...

Mel - You should really watch your salt intake, I guess.

Timster said...

John - Yeah...I used to live there. Kinda wish I still did...

Timster said...

Aangirfan - Yeah. I have looked around the net and I can't find any mention of this? It ran in two Seattle weeklies at once...(crickets)
Spooky that the tribe hasn't burned the town down...yet.

Ah, now I see the link... I tried to copy it from the picture. What a goober!

Still, serendipity has taken me to some other interesting sites I'd have not seen otherwise, so my typo paid off. '30 billion' like the other magic figure of '6 million' leads to some interesting reading.

Thank you for the many links!
