Your signature is requested

Today is my day to 'baby sit' the crew that is now changing our upstairs floors and I've been on the computer since two hours, making up for 'lost' time. So I am taking the opportunity to do my rounds (and shame on me for not having my favourite blogs linked yet, I do on the Austin Permie though).
Mary on her site 'Get Your Own' did her bloggers duty and passed on info she found on another site:

Teach the children well
Left of Centrist has posted a piece about some Chicago H.S. Students who face Expulsion Following an Antiwar Sit-In. HELP NEEDED.
Please go over and take a look. If we lose our right to speak out we've lost everything.

Mary, it must be a '40s' thing. The older I get, the more I can't keep my yap shut! There is a bumper sticker here (I've seen it 'floating' around) that says 'well behaved women seldom make history'. That's what these kids are doing, they are not towing anyone's 'line', they are speaking up, making waves, distracting everyone from their sleepy lives where intelligent thought has no room to breath. Kids like that should be encouraged and commended for not only using their critical thinking skills, but their courage. These kids are certainly not going to become adults who think everything is fine in hunkydoryville USA!

Expelled for valuing human life. While "The Party Of Values" continues to murder. Up is down, back is forth...(:
