Good deeds

Just re-upped my memberships in the ACLU and Amnesty International. The broad disregard for civil liberties displayed by the current administration combined with their ongoing violation of the standards of good practice in prosecuting their war on some terror made these mandatory contributions for me.

This year, I've added a donation to the Sierra Club. Recent efforts to sneak authorization to drill in the ANWR into a defense appropriation bill made this a necessity. Require automakers to increase the mpg of all vehicles for sale in the U.S.? No. Destroy one of the last pristine wildernesses on the planet so people can keep driving Hummers? Yes, apparently. Well, not on my watch. I think anyone that wants to drill in ANWR should be forced to walk across it in the summer without any insect repellent.
