(Look at the post below this if the title doesn't make any sense to you.)
Recently, I've asked you folks to go visit a couple of blogs, one kept by a real, live friend and one by a guy in the Biddness who I think is pretty entertaining. I know a lot of you dropped in on them, but I don't know if any of you have continued visiting. Well, if you haven't been keeping up with them, each of them blogged about something today that I thought was pretty nifty.
SubTropicalGal, among other things, links a story informing us of something cooking in the town of Brattleboro, VT. Brattleboro is a really nice town. I've been there a few times and I'd love to visit again. But now, I've decided that Brattleboro rocks. The town voted to issue an indictment of George Bush for violating his oath of office. Now, town cops will be able to arrest him if he ever visits. (He hasn't set foot in the state of Vermont since taking office, but one can dream.)
Also, The Anonymous Production Assistant links a story about a group that is training wounded Marines to do tech jobs in film and video...and then getting them an I.A.T.S.E. Union Card. For those of you not in the film biz, (and that would be most of you), that's fucking huge.
The I.A. is an extremely powerful union who have always worked hard to make sure their membership didn't become...overpopulated. What that means is, if you've got an I.A. card and you want to work...you're going to work. This is a program that will make a difference for its participants. Excellent!
