With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

FRIENDS FROM NYC

Click on the cartoon for a larger view
This past weekend Anne Gibbons, a leader of CodePink New York City, came to Bath with her husband Ivan to speak at the protest I helped organize at the Iron Works. She spoke about the work they are doing in New York and their participation in organizing a protest during space week at L-3 Communications.

We got a really great news article in the local paper covering the demonstration. The story featured our conversion message and got it right.

Anne is a cartoonist and has a syndicated cartoon called Six Chicks that she does with five other women. She came to our Global Network space organizing conference last spring in Omaha and Anne also organized a speaking tour in the NYC area for Mary Beth during Hiroshima-Nagasaki remembrance days in August.

We took Anne and Ivan kayaking during the weekend and for a walk on the beach at Reed State Park. They are good folks and we enjoyed hosting them.
