Check out this link to an article in my local newspaper this morning:

I would only make one comment on the content of the in-print version (on-line this has been corrected) - when referring to the EQIE the author said we were part of EQCA and that is not the case. We collaborate with them and other activist groups at times and we "co-branded" with them specifically on the Leadership Summit last Saturday in San Bernardino, but we are our own, very independent grassroots activist group. We don't want to be bogged down by the agendas and policies of other larger groups or be crippled by the infighiting and posturing that goes on in many of them. We learned a lot on that subject at the Summit on Saturday past.
The author of the article said this to me this morning after she updated the article on-line:
"Since you do a lot of activism and such, I thought I'd let you know that you (or any other locals around SGV or the Pasadena area) don't need a stamp to send a letter to the editor.
Go to http://www.sgvtribune.com/writealetter or http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/writealetter. We tend to get the same people writing in all the time about the weirdest stuff (there was a two-month debate in the letters about whether a jack-in-the-box commercial was morally bankrupt), so it'd be nice to mix it up."
So there you go - let's "mix it up"!
Hugs and blessings,
