Puppy says I don't care what you call the parade. Just don't step on me, take me to street fairs, where the blacktop gets too hot for my paws.I like to poop in peace.[Hey people, don't be sheeple; check out the comments in previous posts about boycott. They're grrrreat!]
excerpt from "Jerry Falwell and his hunt for the Christmas Grinch"by David Batstone:". . .last week I ran the Jerry Falwell campaign by a study group I was teaching at a Presbyterian church in California. They immediately voiced their exhaustion with the cultural wars that have sucked in our holidays as the latest battlefront. They do not want to force all American citizens to recognize Christmas as the "constitutional" December holiday, but they also don't want to look over their shoulder every time they sing "Silent Night." . . . Falwell and his cohorts then use these actions as the impetus for a holy war to take back Christmas. The American Family Association, for instance, last week announced a boycott on all Target stores, because, according to the group, the retailer has chosen not to use "Merry Christmas" on advertising and in-store promotions. Disputing that charge, Target spokeswoman Carolyn Brookter told the San Francisco Chronicle, "I don't know where they're coming from. We have no such policy on Christmas. You can see it in our stores." Her denial is unnecessary anyway, in my mind. If a store chooses to honor the holiday traditions of all its diverse shoppers, why should I punish their embrace? I know that I am not the only American - Christian, Jewish, Muslim or other - who can't be troubled to join these cultural wars. Share the joy of Christmas and Hanukkah - which begin on the same day this year - with each other. And express it in the way that delivers your best wishes. Those who are looking for offense will find their cause. Look instead for ways to celebrate the gifts of the season together."
Is Dalager becomming another Jerry Falwell??!! Danny, please don't stir up dissent for the Holidays.It's beginning to look a lot likeXMas. Where are the wisemen, when we need them?Get a grip, Dan. You are not The Man. You are a man. Be one.
It's called a diversion.
I saw a thing in City Beat, or was it the Reader?, talking about how electing Council members at large makes it far more difficult for small, grassroots groups to be effective. In our not always so fine city, we have two things (at a minimum)that keep us from being well-represented: Our Council Members are elected at large, and two or three run at a time. This situation is a huge bone for the dirty dog incumbents who get in, then stay in control, keep us in the doghouse, by betraying the rest of the pack.We know we can't all be top dog. But we need decent leaders. We should have district elections, as in Rainbow Water District, where it made a huge difference in recent recall in their special election.
