Stolen from Unfair Park:

The University of Texas at Dallas just announced that Chelsea Clinton will be at the school tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. on the lower level of the Student Union. Which is interesting timing, to say the least: As we noted last night, Barack Obama will be at Reunion Arena tomorrow morning, with doors opening at 10:30 a.m. Only, don't…


You've probably heard about the "superdelegates" who could end up deciding the Democratic nominee.

The superdelegates are under lots of pressure right now to come out for one candidate or the other. We urgently need to encourage them to let the voters decide between Clinton and Obama--and then to support the will of the people.

I signed a petition urging the superdelegates to respect the will of the voters. Can you join me at the link below?

Take Action: No Bush Library at SMU

Date: 15/02/2008

(please repost!)

If you haven't signed the petition to help keep the Bush Library out of SMU...please go here:

February 11, 2008 - I am the organizer of the petition that you signed at I am also a United Methodist minister and research psychologist living in New York City who graduated from Perkins School of Theology at SMU.

Our petition continues to grow. There are now over 11,300 signers representing every state and several nations, including twenty-nine United Methodist bishops, hundreds of graduates of SMU and thousands of clergy, church members, and people of conscience. Many thanks for your support!
There is every indication that the George W. Bush Foundation is moving full steam ahead to establish a partisan think tank at SMU. We believe the signing of a 99 year lease is not far away.

Below is a letter five South Central Jurisdiction delegates sent to the George W. Bush Foundation on January 31, 2008. We…

Letter to Proctor and Gamble :)

Pocket Meggie sent this to me in an email and I laughed out loud so now I share this with all of you. I looked it up and credit goes to Wendi Aarons for this. Go girl! :)

This is an actual letter from an Austin woman sent to American company Proctor and Gamble regarding their feminine products. She really gets rolling after the first paragraph... PC Magazine's 2007 editors'choice for best web mail-award-winning letter....

Dear Mr. Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the Leak Guard Core or Dry-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel e…

Vote for the New Texas License Plate

Thanks to Brian for bringing this to my attention. I voted, did you?


Over the last 30 years, designs for the state's general issue plate have ranged from a plain, white background to the flying Lone Star Flag.

In January of 2009, production of the next plate will begin. Texans will have the opportunity to vote for one of four new designs or to keep the current plate.

For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions.

Voting Timeframe

Voting begins at noon on Monday, Feb. 4 and ends at noon on Monday, Feb. 11. View the current unofficial vote count.
