A Few Announcements

I will be on the road all day tomorrow (Friday), so I won’t be blogging and will not have Internet access over the weekend, but I will be back at it on Monday!


If you’re a little heavy in the wallet and want to help a great candidate take back Congress for the Democrats, contribute to Peter Goldmark’s campaign (more about Goldmark here and more about his opponent here).  As you can see on my sidebar, he’s really starting to catch fire amongst blog readers.  Help him keep it up!

Also check out this post at Washblog that includes a message from Peter Goldmark.


And last but not least, if you live in the Seattle area and don’t have plans for this Sunday (August 20th), consider attending The Uncaged Cabaret, a benefit for Jim McDermott.  The legal bills he’s racked up defending our right to know what our government is up to aren’t going to pay themselves.  The event looks like a lot of fun.  Check it out.

I don't support Jim and can not figger why he is in Congress.

The District is suffieciently secure that anyone in the position will vote as he does so he is not simply saving the seat from a Pulican.

He has virtually no influence and is rated near the bottom in terms of importanc ein Congress.

On issue sthat matter to the District, at least to some of us, he is silent. E.g. he never speaks out on the NIH a major issue for the UW (and me). His stand on immigration is not mine (that is OK by me) but his stand on immigartion of skilled workers is a mjor District issue and he ain't there.

All in all, Jim is too long in the tooth. He shold take his retirement and let some one with more energy get a job. How about Ron Sims?
