two for tuesday...

okay so it's technically not tuesday anymore, but this is important. (also as a side note please don't forget to read my two latest posts. i personally think they're fabulous)


i usually try to stay out of political stuff, but as president monson said :
"as california goes so goes the nation and then the world"

there is a bill trying to be passed in california where state-wide "harvey milk day" is trying to be instated as a day of remembrance with commemorative activities and exercises. he was a very prominent gay figure, and this would filter into the schools. to vote no (and you don't have to be from california, or anything! you just have to have a phone), follow the following 15 second instructions:

1. dial 916.445.2841 to get to the governor's line
2. press 1 for english
3. press 2 to get to the poll to comment on legislation
4. press 1 to get to the queue to vote your opinion on AB 2567
5. press 2 to record a NO or veto vote

this seriously takes like 13.2 seconds.
thanks!!

And ... what's wrong with this "filtering into the schools"? Harvey Milk is an important historical figure. I was never taught about him in high school and I am frankly shocked that such important history was elided.
