…and out again.
Too tired to write properly, so two quick links:
* My premiere on The Membrane has been uploaded by the marvelous Mr. Amaya. Check it out – it’s a great episode. I’m not just saying that, either. I think y’all will enjoy it. And if you can figure out which voice is mine, let me know and I’ll tell you if you’re right.
* As part of the Endorsement Committee for SoCal Grassroots, I’ve actually – for the first time ever, I’m sorry to say – read the details of the propositions I’ll be voting for in a little over a week. Not that I haven’t tried to read the voter guides put out by the Secretary of State in the past. I have. But the dense writing just messed with my delicate little mind. Now after serving on a committee with people who have been doing this sort of thing for years – decades even – I have a better understanding of the language involved.
All of this is a set-up to introduce you to the SoCal Grassroots Voter Guide. You may or may not agree with our recommendations, but I have to say, I’m pretty much in line with what we’ve come up with. None of it was rushed – our discussions were long, involved and, on occasion, heated. As were the discussions of the Coordinating Committee when the Endorsement Committee brought the consent calendar for acceptance.
There are a couple of recommendations that are surprising, especially for a progressive group such as ours, but they were arrived at with due thought and diligence.
