Tina Fey is back on SNL . . .

This may be the best thing about Palin being nominated for VP.

Big Party @ Cole's

Sept 26 7-9 pm.

Open Bar (Beer and Wine), Plus wings, beef and weck, and dessert.

Music by the Theresa Quinn Duo

To benefit Lafayette Church.

All for low, low price of $25, or 4 for $100.

In addition to creating a positive spiritual community, Lafayette also does things that the non-spiritually minded might like. We host a soup kitchen and a nursery school, share our playground and our meeting rooms for community groups and recovery groups, too. Heck, we even provide a home for community supported agriculture!

Most important, of course, to (e:strip)pers is this--Lafayette Church is home to (e:Drew) and (e:Janelle)! :)

Comment and I will get you tickets. There will also be a basket auction, for those of you that like putting tickets in jars to try to win stuff (and if you have a basket to donate--even better!).

Ten Things I like about the Daily Show

1. It's available on line.

2. It tells the truth.

3. It gets everybody.

4. Jon Stewart's Funny faces.

5. "This week in God."

6. Politicians having debates with themselves, via video clips.

7. Stewart doesn't take himself too seriously, but he takes the established media even less seriously.

8. They say things other media will not.

9. Guests are treated well, even when Jon doesn't agree with them.

10. A moment of zen.

If anybody wants to lend us an extension ladder, that would be nice.

Dream come true?

This morning I heard an NPR commentator ask if Obama's candidacy meant that Rev. King's dream had been fulfilled.

The guy that they asked didn't say yes or no, but instead hemmed and hawed about how this is historic but really there is a long way to go.

I wish he would have said: "Has the dream come true? What are you nuts!? King said, "we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream."

The candidacy is great. The election will be a major step forward. But we have a LONG way to go.

More on the dream, still deferred, not only for black Americans, but for most Americans:

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."²

The secret plan.

It's a simple plan, but the best ones are.

Somebody goes to a Trader Joe's in another town, and buys one or two hundred of their re-usable bags.

Like this one:


Then, said person re-sells them to people who want Joe's in town, and asks them to email pictures of them shopping with them. Later, all the future joe's shoppers assemble for a group shot.

You call the media, you encourage people to keep using the bags, you keep sending pics to joe's, basically, telling them, again and again and again that there are shoppers just waiting to spend money at their store.

I think it might work! I know it would be worth it.

My cousin died.

He was kayaking, which he loved. More details, if you want them:

It was always a joy hanging out with Isaac. He was full of joy. Isaac always put relationships first, and always gave fully of himself. Radical in politics, faith, and life (and all of them were completely intertwined, which I love), Isaac lived more in his 26 years than many people do in 80. He will be missed dearly.
