Because killing babies is okay, sometimes.

This regards just a few things.

First, the real business. An
article appeared in the Rocky Mountain News last week referencing a rather brilliant campaign directed at those who oppose the firmly conservative wishes of Sarah Palin; as it turns out, a method of protest more effective than complaining about Palin is to send a donation to Planned Parenthood on her behalf. Palin is, of course, opposed to abortion even in the case of rape or incest, and wishes to overturn Roe V. Wade. If you were to make this donation on her behalf, states the article:

Planned Parenthood sends a handwritten thank-you card to the donor. If a donation is made in someone's name, he or she gets one, too.

In this case, the Palin cards will go to Republican presidential nominee John McCain's national headquarters.

Donations can be made here.

In news more relevant to these pages, Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs are coming back to the states! And they're promoting Dirt Don't Hurt, which arrives Oct. 14. Streams and tour dates
here.

Also, some of us have a "thing" for Swedes. If you fit into this category, Division of Laura Lee's making a small comeback with Violence is Timeless, out on hand numbered vinyl now in the US (see
website), and a tour (Los Angeles date is at Spaceland Oct. 7).
