START A PETITION

Aug 30, 2011

Hey friends and spectators,
I just wanted to give a few updates. First, I am alive, well and having a great summer, and I hope you all are, too. Second, I want to say that my care2 petition to extend the statute of limitations for the prosecution of child sex abuse in NY is still gathering signatures, here as well as a carbon-copy petition on change.org. New York State legislators will be coming back from their summer recess (vacation) shortly- I believe next week some time. The Executive Director of Prevent Child Abuse NY and I will have a conversation about how, exactly, we present these to Senator McDonald, but I'm leaning toward the old fashoned way- print and hand it over. No, not terribly green, but... I think we can be forgiven. Hopefully I will be able to deliver it in person, and put my own spin on it... I'll keep you posted.
There's some interesting discussions happening on Aiyana's Group-her voice will be heard (I hope I got that right- I might have messed the name up a little, but a search under child abuse groups will get you there). I encourage any of you who have even the slightest interst in children's issues to join... it seems to be one of the most active child abuse groups here.
And lastly, my book is still for sale at either http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/efforts-to-save-the-meat-rabbits/15831526
or
http://www.healingthroughcreativity.org/index.php?page=shop.browse&category=&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1
If you're in the mood to buy, I recommend the second link, as Healing through Creativity is a not-for-profit that does lots of good work and will be supported with each copy of my book purchased from its site. At some point in the future, I expect to do a reading on Stage Left, an internet radio program for authors and musicians who want their work to help make a difference in this world. And that's me. When I get a time, I'll share with you folks. Until then, peace.

PS- in an attempt to make this seem a little warmer and fuzzier, I plan on posting some pictures of my warm fuzzies, my dogs and cats, soon.

\nAm I the only the only one who gets emails waxing poetic about how much better the United States was in days of yore, when the only people whose rights mattered were healthy, white, adult males? I am? Let me add one detail- these emails are supposed ...
