Hey California folks,
There was a letter to the editor
today in the "Desert Dispatch" newspaper - which serves Barstow and the surrounding areas.
The letter was a homophobic diatribe against Mark Leno's bill, SB1437
, which would provide for equal time and instruction in public school classrooms to acknowledge the positive contributions of GLBT people to California history, science, and other important issues. I followed the instructions in the letter to let the Governator know my feelings on the matter... all but the last
I quote from the letter, with two small changes enclosed in [brackets] to show my edits.
Governor Schwarzennegger has set up a special phone line for your input on this bill. Simply dial 1-916-445-2841, there will be a recorded message, press 1 for English, then at "Is this about legislation bill?" press 2 for yes, then at the "Is the bill SB1437?" press 1 for yes, and finally at "Are you in favor of this legislation" press [1 for YES]. Less than 30 seconds of your time can [SAVE] this bill.
Do feel free to forward this to all and sundry. Press 1-2-1-1, folks. Call and make a difference.
Subverting the dominant paradigm for fun and pleasure,
