January 30, 2010
Present for check-in at 10:00 a.m. at Associated Ministries, Tacoma, WA: Colleen, Nancy, Mark, Sallie, Rob..
1. CHECK-IN TIME (Nancy)
Henceforward, PJH's "check-in" (a non-cross-talk round of commentary on the experience of the past week by those who are present) will begin by 10:20 a.m. In this way it is hoped that there will always be adequate time for the discussion of agenda items.
2. STATE OF THE UNION (All)
General dismay at the indifference displayed with regard to the environmental impact of energy proposals (nuclear plants, "clean coal," off-shore drilling, etc.). One member found President Obama's simile comparing the bail-out of banks to a root canal to be apposite.
3. PJH FUNDRAISER (All)
People for Peace, Justice, and Healing will hold a fundraiser on Sat., May 1, 2010, at Associated Ministries. Program: to be determined.
A FEW RANDOM REFERRALS
1. Pandora is "an automated music recommendation and Internet radio service." See the website.
2. Dave Eggers is not only a notable author (A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius  and editor but also, more clandestinely, a social activist.
