Joy First

June 29, 2007

Joy goes on trial July 9th for her participation in this demonstration of conscience. Joy says, “Seven of us were arrested in the Hart Senate Office Building one hour after the Senate voted to give Bush $100 billion in supplemental funding to continue the war.

There is a party in Madison on the 7th, a send-off celebration before Joy goes on trial.

A lot of what I write is voiced like it was spoken by my dear Aunt Hentic. That’s because I’m as simple as she is. Auntie waxes eloquent below in a comment about preparing brown bag lunches. But is that what it’s really about? I don’t know. Last night I dreamed my boss was my [...]
