Only in America: Competing (Satirical) Political Rallies

Kimberly writes: LOL! I love this stuff. Political comedian Jon Stewart has announced that he is holding an October 30, 2010 rally in D.C. called “Rally to Restore Sanity”.

Wild conspiracy theory: Who was really behind Power Shift 2009?

Live streaming of the Power Shift/Capitol Climate Action demo against the Capitol coal plant in DC: here. KW: I thought this one up on Friday before Power Shift 2009. I am publishing it after Power Shift is mostly over. (with the anti-coal demonstration in DC underway.) Didn’t want to burst anyone’s bubble.

Sunday: Some thoughts on the Power Shift conference in DC

So, I am observing from afar the Power Shift conference in DC with hopefulness and some healthy skepticism. I am thankful that 12,ooo or so young people cared enough about something political and environmental to show up. (So many times, among my progressive colleagues, we find ourselves saying “Where are the young people?”.) I am […]

Obama children did not go to church service

[This is odds and ends coverage from live blogging about the Inauguration…] The Obama children – Sasha and Malia – did not go to the Inauguration Day Prayer Service/Church Service.
