My blog is considered too dangerous to be available in China. Good for me, bad for Chinese citizens.
Do you qualify?

Thanks to Curmudgeonly and Skeptical for the link.

I'm not kidding, this is pretty exciting. I make the cut, but the Daily Kos does not. How awesome is that?

Away for a while, and a question

I'll be out for mid-terms and spring break. So, I might not post something soon. Go read Consul for lots of good stuff today.

Also, does anyone have a suggestion of a good documentary about the Iraq war? We've got some leftists planing a film festival, but since they're my friends, they're open to allowing a bit of truth to enter into the spectrum. It should be a fun experience, but since I don't often watch documentaries (they rarely show the truth) I don't know of any good ones.

So, anyone out there got any suggestions?

I'm running for President of my student government this week, so I've been pretty busy. Too busy to come up with something worthy of posting, anyway.

I have, however, been able to read a bit. I want to take a moment to give Dean, of Dean's World, some props about his line in the sand. It's easier to have a discussion about what is to be done that includes all sides when one side refrains from directly insulting the other, without cause. It makes me ashamed that it was my own side that was using uninformed slurs. Anyway, go check out this post, and watch the video. It's another thing that bugs me, especially while living in the environment that I do live in.

I've got a Press Pass

And, finally, a published article. I know I haven't been blogging as much lately, and this is one of the reasons. Here's the note as it ended up:
Going Greener | March 01, 2007
Colby students this week found hundreds of new travel mugs in the dining halls, allowing them to grab one to keep their coffee, tea, and cocoa warm on their way to class. When they bring the mugs back to a dining hall the next day, the staff washes them for reuse. The program allows Dining Services to stop providing disposable paper cups and is one of many green initiatives at Colby.

and here's what I sent to my editor:

Colby Students had a pleasant surprise when they arrived at breakfast on Tuesday
morning and found hundreds of new travel mugs waiting for them. Now, students can grab
a travel mug to keep their coffee or tea warm on their way to class, and then bring
the mug back to any dining hall at the next meal to be washed. Using the travel mugs
allows Sodexo to stop providing disposable paper cups. This is all part of Colby?s
Green campaign and Sodexo?s continueing efforts to reduce waste.

So, you can see that there's a lot of differences...

But, it's cool none the less.

P.S. Blogging should return to normal somewhat soon, but right now I'll be busy for another few weeks. I'm acting in a play that goes up tonight (we'll do three performances over the next three days), and I'm also doing something else that I can't talk about in such a public location (at least, not until monday), so, I'll be out of it for a little bit longer. Sorry, remember, Free Ice-Cream.
