Remember the friend I reconnected with over lunch on Tuesday? We’d been facebook friends for awhile but never really talked. Then I saw an essay he’d written, a response to a friends email asking him why he opposed Prop 8.
I was pleasantly surprised to read what he had to say (he was probably pleasantly surprised that I agreed, as our small Southern Baptist school is not notorious for turning out open minded, progressive types), and said so, and we got to chatting. He made some really interesting points, and I hope you enjoy reading this. – CLICK HERE TO READ MORE… Valancy Jane

Talk was hopeful on the line but my hopes were dashed as I got to my election district’s line since the machine was inoperable and I had to fill out a paper ballot. Something about pulling the handle across, clicking the keys and pulling the handle back again that is so aurally and physically satisfying. Didn’t need to videotape this so I photographed it.
So rather than attempting that, I wish that Snyder had devoted some space and energy to seriously examining questions he should have tackled: Can graffiti be harnessed as a force for social change? Do political pieces like this one[photo above] awaken the minds of the disengaged?
