34 million friends of women

In the midst of my painting the family/computer room, Leslie dropped an editorial on my desk and said, “Put this on your web site.”

My first response was that if I had time to put something on my website I would write up the article I’ve been working on about MacLeish, some poems I’ve really gotten into and am not willing to just skim over them.

Still, after I read Ellen Goodman’s editorial on how two women started a campaign to raise money for the UNFPA after George Bush killed America’s contribution of 34 million dollars because the UNFPA included advice on abortion I ageed that it’s a vital cause, and the editorial is well worth a read.

Remarkably enough, it looks like they may make it yet if a few more people get involved.
