Democracy Starts at Home Dark T-shirt
Attending the voting rights rally earlier this year inspired me to create this t-shirt. Lots of the participants were carrying placards that said things like "Free DC", "Democracy Starts at Home" and "End Taxation without Representation". The message on this tee refers to our country's fight for democracy abroad while citizens of Washington DC are denied the basic democratic rights at home.
When: Sunday, December 16, 1:30 - 2:30 PM
Where: Georgetown Waterfront Park
Beyond K Street toward the river between Wisconsin Ave. and 31st Street, NW
(map and tips on getting to Georgetown with public transportation.)
What: Rally, speeches, and a symbolic reenactment of the Boston Tea Party
Plus, free tea, donuts, and tea bags that say 'End Taxation Without Representation' More info.

"Plan ahead to avoid a bumpy road
Allow extra time in a travel schedule. Bad traffic can often be avoided with a little preparation. The heaviest travel days are usually before and after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Consider taking an extra day off so that you aren't stuck in the pack. Also, try to minimize holiday stress by getting the bulk of your shopping done well before the holiday.
Make sure cars are well-equipped for travel. Breaking down in the dark, in bad weather or in the cold can crush the holiday spirit. It's a good idea to take the car in for a winter "check-up." A mechanic can inspect the antifreeze, battery, windshield wipers and other cold-weather components. Make sure that the tire pressure is at the recommended levels, as tires can be hazardous in wet weather when they are not filled to proper levels.
Think before you drive. the highways are a community. As much as we may want to think we are isolated in our steel and glass bubbles, driving is really a social interaction without words. To understand holiday driving conditions, think of the way people act outside of their cars in this time of year. Many are worried, preoccupied, hurried, distracted and all those states of mind that make them easily agitated and less careful. On the road, this means that everyone should be more vigilant than usual, give people more distance and be forgiving when someone does something rash or absent-minded. Avoid confrontations, and try not to let other drivers bring you out of the happy holiday zone.
With common sense, you can make sure tragedy does not come between you and the festive holiday you have planned. Follow these fire prevention tips to help you and your family have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
¨ Keep your family and overnight guests safe with a working smoke detector on every level of the house, in every bedroom, and in the halls adjacent to the bedrooms. Test smoke detectors monthly and replace batteries at least twice a year.
¨ Overnight guests should be instructed on the fire escape plan and designated meeting place for your home.
¨ Have a fire extinguisher available not more than 10 feet from the stove, on the exit side of the room.
¨ A 2-1/2 lb. class ABC multi-purpose dry chemical extinguisher is recommended. Know how to use your fire extinguisher.
¨ Start holiday cooking with a clean stove and oven.
¨ Keep the kitchen off-limits to young children and adults that are not helping with food preparations to lessen the possibility of kitchen mishaps.
¨ When cooking, do not wear clothing with loose sleeves or dangling jewelry. The clothing can catch on fire and the jewelry can catch on pot handles, causing spills and burns.
¨ Cook on the back burners when possible and turn pot handles in so they don't extend over the edge of the stove.
¨ Never leave cooking unattended. If you must leave the kitchen while cooking, turn off the stove or have someone else watch what is being cooked.
¨ Keep Thanksgiving decorations and kitchen clutter away from sources of direct heat.
¨ Candles are often part of holiday decorations. Candles should never be left burning when you are away from home, or after going to bed. Candles should be located where children will not be tempted to play with them, and where guests will not accidentally brush against them. The candle holder should be completely noncombustible and difficult to knock over. The candle should not have combustible decorations around it.
¨ If smoking is allowed inside, provide guests with large, deep ashtrays and check them frequently. After guests leave, check inside and under upholstery and in trash cans for cigarette butts that may be smoldering.
..Watch your guest when drinking, if you feel that they have had too much to drink, Call a cab, designate a driver; call a friend; stay at your hotel or home ... but please don't drink and drive. And don't let your friends, either. Always celebrate responsibly! Be educated. Make more informed decisions after drinking - and help your friends and family make them too.

With Veterans' Day coming soon, DC Vote is asking veterans and their families to shine attention on the Senate's filibuster of the DC Voting Rights Act. The District of Columbia has lost daughters and sons in every American conflict, yet Washingtonians are denied representation in the Congress that sends our sons and daughters to war. Please help us make a strong statement by joining us this Wednesday at our Veterans for DC Voting Rights Rally and Lobby Day.
When: Wednesday, November 7, 11:00 AM -12:30 PM
Where: Outside the Dirksen Senate Building (1st Street and Constitution Avenue, NE)
Who: American veterans, their family, and other supporters of DC voting rights
After the public rally for DC voting rights, groups of veterans, joined by media, will visit the offices of filibustering Senators to personally express their opinion and seek a response.
If you are a veteran or know veterans supportive of DC Voting Rights, please join us on November 7. To help facilitate the rally and lobby events, please RSVP to Eugene D. Kinlow (firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.462.6000 x13) and let us know if you can come and indicate if you are a veteran.
Thanks for your support!
Eugene D. Kinlow,

Assemble near the National Museum of the American Indian (on the Mall,
c.3 blocks South and West of Union Station Metro). March around the
Capitol. Since we have no remaining war aims in Iraq (having proven
there are no WMD there, having removed SH), U.S. presence in Iraq will
be endless in the absence of protest.
