McCain Lies To The American People About Nuclear Power

The vehemence displayed by John McCain in last night's debate in his promotion of nuclear power was both astonishing and frightening. Not only did he blatantly lie to the American people about the safety of nuclear power, he literally made a joke about Barack Obama's desire to improve the way we store spent fuel.

Sharing stories with the Chapel Hill HS Gay-Straight Alliance

Cross-posted at Pam's House Blend.

On Monday I attended the regular meeting of the Gay-Straight-Alliance at Chapel Hill High School and it was a wonderful experience, being surrounded by so many self-aware, talented and insightful young people who were willing to share with me what life is like for them as LGBTs and allies in 2008.

I was invited by the advisor for the GSA, chemistry instructor and strong ally Alan Rissberger (known as "the Riz" to the folks). He has created a casual, comfortable and nurturing environment for the young people to share their stories. I think it's a huge testament to Rissberger and out gay social studies teacher and co-sponsor Tom Greene, that the students were able to open up to me during my visit with the group.
