free day  
i am supposed to be on a plane to newark and then stockholm (for http://www.stockholmpride.org/en/) but they sent me home from the airport and told me to start over tomorrow and add and extra stop and hope to make it there, so somehow i have a free day! this feels very exciting. things have been busy since i moved to seattle and a bonus day to settle in and get things done and be in the sun is wonderful.
i've been working on putting together my poverty law syllabus for the fall. i discovered that United for a Fair Economy has a really good curriculum about the racial wealth divide that is freely downloadable on their website. full of good tools. i also recommend the PBS film series "Unnatural Causes" which is available through libraries and is very compelling to watch and a great teaching tool about poverty and racism but also an amazing way to teach biopolitics i think. i'll report back on how that goes.
tyrone and i are gearing up to debut the enough website in late july. prepare yourselves to forward our future announcement widely. we're hoping to drum up some excellent conversation.
oh, and here is an article emma forwarded that i thought would be a good tool for talking with people like parents and weird conservative siblings and stuff about what's wrong in the US. http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2008/jul/17/internationalaidanddevelopment.usa
also, if anyone knows, i'm looking for info about the outgames. i was invited to possibly speak at the conference they have alongside it and i don't know the politics of the event so i wondered if anyone has insider info? what should i know about this?

enough
enough is this project that emerged out of conversations that started on this livejournal last july (see below, starting with "giving away money" and going forward in time from there). i'll post here when it's ready and i hope you'll have a link and consider contributing!
