Valancy Jane on Proposition 8

Court to review gay marriage – BBC

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

Substantial Lobbying Activity: In general, no organization, including a church, may qualify for IRC section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation (commonly known as lobbying). An IRC section 501(c)(3) organization may engage in some lobbying, but too much lobbying activity risks loss of tax-exempt status.

VOTE! Early Election Turn-out in Flatbush Produces Long Lines & Hope

After arriving at my polling place at 6:15AM on P.S. 269 on Nostrand & Newkirk Avenues, I realized I should have set my alarm clock for an earlier time (and should NOT have played the snooze button twice) because the line stretched around the block all the way past New York Avenue. 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.

In his review of Graffiti Lives: Beyond the Tag in New York’s Urban Underground by Gregory Snyder, a sociologist and anthropologist at Baruch College in New York City – Adler asks:

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?

Reuters Article By Matthew Bigg

ATLANTA (Reuters) – For supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama it is a nightmare scenario — his apparent lead in the battle for the White House suddenly evaporates on Election Day. The cause? Race.
