E-Book Publication Date:

Other News:

Once in awhile people asked why I'm so involved in gay rights, "Why not other issues."  Here are two others.

1. Funding cuts are again threatening our Public Broadcasting System. Known as one of our most level sources of news and education, it seems good to me to keep this public service strong.  If you want to sign a petition to keep PBS, here's a way to do it.

2. On July 25th, our Chelan Community is hosting an exhibition of Eyes Wide Open: The Human Cost of the Iraq War.  It's an exhibit of combat boots and civilian shoes, representing the military and civilian deaths in Iraq.  This month the U.S. Military death toll will likely reach 2500.  The civilion toll is estimated to be 50 times that number.  See the American Friends Service Committee to learn more about this project.  See our Chelan webpage to read what a group of us are working to prepare here.

Blessings for this day, and for the journey to keep perspective and hope alive.
