See the next several postings for a whole lot of ideas about what you can do to cope with feelings of powerlessness in the midst of multiple crises. But in cAlifornia--be sure to vote this week. I've a few voting ideas to suggest:
I am voting for Das Williams in our local Assembly primary, who, contrary to campaign propoganda, is a staunch opponent of oil drilling in the channel as well as an outstanding progressive voice.
I am voting against prop 14, which, the more I've pondered it, the more it seems to me to undermine the right of political parties and their supporters to choose their candidates.
And I'm lending my support to Marcie Winograd, the staunch peace activist opposing Jane Harman for congress--Harman being one of the foremost Democratic hawks. A good vote for Winograd would send a good message.
And in the local 2nd district supervisorial race: Janet Wolf to be re-elected. Dan Secord, her opponent, has covered up his backers' intention to redistrict the board in favor of the most backward land interests in north county.
