Quick Weekend Tidbits
Just had to post two things I came across this morning.
First, for all of you who had your hearts broken by not getting to meet Al Gore last month (and for those of us who just can't get enough), MoveOn is doing a conference call with Al to discuss the movie this Sunday. Click here for more info.
Also, in reference to Carly's alarming post on Sunday, here's a hopeful sign. Apparently, it's not just Carly who has been anxiously watching the situation. Legislation tightening the immigration laws and labor laws which would impact the Northern Marianas Islands has passed the Senate repeatedly for ten years, only to be blocked in the House by DeLay. WHAT A BAD GUY! So on the very day of his departure, House Dems have filed the legislation to eliminate the legal conditions which let these monsters exploit other human beings. What better way to celebrate the end of an incredibly bad era. Here's the LA Times article.
Related, more cyncical note: DeLay is apparently shopping for a house in Virginia. Why would he need a house in Virginia??? Speculation is he's getting a job as...wait for it...a lobbyist. Boo. Hiss.
