Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system. read more…

April 4, 2011

Given that I will be in France over the next two years of the 2012 presidential election campaigns, I won’t be able to volunteer very much for the local campaigns in either NYC or Los Angeles (that didn’t stop me from bringing in a couple thousand votes in the last election between my personal campaigning […]

Crayola Multicultural Crayons – Arizona Limited Edition Set

May 17, 2010

This image of the Crayola Multicultural Crayons Set has been making its rounds on Facebook and I thought I’d repost it for the 3 of you not on FB.  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed the country’s toughest illegal immigration bill into law on April 23, 2010.  Among other things, the law makes it a state-level criminal offense (a misdemeanor) to not carry immigration documents or proof of citizenship at all times.  Police will have the power to stop people at will and request these documents (passport, drivers license, green card…).

Conques

August 3, 2008

Welcome to Conques, one of the historical “Great Sites of France” and well worth the visit to anyone passing through the region.  I find Conques very relaxing and peaceful, due perhaps to the spiritual history of Conques as a pilgrimage site honoring its Saint Foy, literally Saint Faith (think Santa Fe).  Saint Faith was a […]
