Signal Boosting: A Thank You from Lifting Voices.
Thanks to you, Tatiana can share her story.
One day, our team visited Tatiana and met her grandfather, a big man with a shy face. He invited us into the living room where he now spends much of his day. This man earned a doctorate in astrophysics in Argentina. In America, he took a job as a janitor to provide for his family. Now, nearing the end of his journey, his walls are covered in posters and paintings of the universe, and his bookshelves sag with books on the stars. We watched as Tatiana’s little cousin gave her grandpa a big, sloppy hug, and his face broke into a very satisfied smile.
In this home, we helped Tatiana write about her meals, the daily celebrations of her family’s sustaining love.
Thanks to you, the pages of Counter Culture will soon come to life, brimming with the energy of Tatiana and her friends. We’re working with an amazing crew: kids like Tatiana, culinary masters José Andrés, Spike Mendelsohn, and Robert Egger. And, of course, you.
You helped us raise $5,201, surpassing our goal. Thank you so much for your contribution, and for sharing the word with your friends.
If you’d like more stories and pictures from our world, please visit our blog, and consider joining us as a volunteer. We look forward to welcoming you.
Not sure if you were going to mention this or not. I’m very impressed at Ms. Logan courage and openness about this issue. I’m glad she’s bringing awareness to this issue for women throughout the world.

From Vijay Prashad on the killing of Osama bin Laden:
In 1981 Ronald Reagan signed Executive Order 12333, which disallows the US from pursuing targeted assassinations. Likewise, international law forbids this type of action. I’m very disturbed that there is no qualified discussion about the legality of this type of action. People on the liberal to progressive side seem to have lost their bearings and are no longer able to be serious when it comes to the question of utilizing armed force overseas.
Confusingly, peeps are reporting that the Dalai Lama approves.

You know, the more I read about the effects of free speech in the US, the more I think it does more harm than good. The first link is about the ‘right’ for users to watch porn in public libraries, even in spaces where children can see, and the second is about tea party lobbyists suing for being thrown out of a library for being too aggresive in their leaflet campaign.

I got this link from Shakesville, the cheerleader who refused to cheer for the basketball player who raped her is being charged $45,000 for filing a “frivolous” lawsuit against her school.
Can anyone tell me the deets of a fund or something to help her pay for this? I want to signal boost the crap out of it.
