Other: When Standing By Means Standing Up
This being said, I'd like to direct your attention to Orcinus, and to an issue that is in his own back yard and in his field of expertise: the rise of neo-nazi visibility in the Pacific Northwest. I'm not going to say that it's a rise of numbers, because their numbers are difficult to gague (they ALWAYS say that their numbers are increasing), but it's the fact that they feel it is a good time to come out of their closets and into the streets that is noteable.
If any of you have a little money left after A) getting the first post-Christmas Visa bills and B) filing tax returns, may I nudge you into making him a small donation? He also has three excellent books focusing on racism and hate crime (Strawberry Fields, Death on the Fourth of July, and In God's Country) if you have a little more money and would like a tangible return.
Okay, that's it for my good deed of the year. I've got to mock someone now to get my karma back to normal...
