Education and Life Celebrated in Streets of Annapolis: Despite 26 Arrests, Algebra Project Action a (State) Smashing Success

Annapolis, MD. Bystanders looked on with tight smiles as the crowd of over 400 surged passed them chanting “We don't want your pity, we want money for our city!”

Public School students from around the state, but primarily from Baltimore City gathered in Annapolis today to demand that the Thorton education funding remain intact and continue to come into the schools. The Thorton Education Bill is an attempt to level the playing field for Maryland's youth. It helps to compensate for discrepancies between how much a county can bring in in taxes and how much they need where education is concerned. Not surprisingly, Baltimore City needs this more than any county—though we get a relatively small percentage of the whole.

Our fearless governor, Martin O'Malley, after promising during elections to make this money available to schools, is now trying to repeal the bill.

The Algebra Project jumped on this, realizing that our schools are already struggling for basic necessities like windows and drinking water, and can't afford any more cuts. They did the only logical thing: they organized a series of direct actions; Today's being the most recent. It was also, arguably, the most powerful.

Feminist Research at SUNY Buffalo

To any woman working toward eliminating sexism and patriarchy:

I'm working on a thesis at University at Buffalo about feminism vs. post-feminism (if such a thing exists). As part of my preliminary research, I have created a short questionnaire for anti-sexist women. The survey should take 10-15 minutes and is essential to the research. Feel free to pass this link along to your friends. Thank you so much!

Bush and Cheney in Hell for 935 Lies - A Satire

Thanks to the great Dante, we know there is a Hell. President George W. Bush, Jr. is headed there, along with Dick Cheney, for the “935” lies, which they concocted that got the country into the Iraq War. Many politicos, who ignored the “935” lies, and also voted to fund the war, like Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Mikulski, will be suffering, too, in the inferno. The cunning Neocons are set for a “Special Place,” and the implosion of WTC-7 becomes an issue.
