March 13, 2012"A young mezzo-soprano whose voice is darkly complex and mysteriously soulful and who adds intense emphasis to every word of text sang six songs by the Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo on Thursday night at the AT&T Center Theatre. In one, a bee bites the lip of a sleeping shepherdess as if it were a rose, to the envy of a shy lover."

July 27, 2010The prior public debate over Proposition 14, for those who noticed the measure, was strange. First, the Ballot Book, sent to voters, misled voters by describing the measure as one that “Increases Right to Participate in Primary Elections.” In fact, it wipes out all other candidates on other lines but the top two vote-getters in November, thereby decreasing the right to participate in the general election. Second, many of the state’s largest newspapers, except for the conservative Orange County Register, editorially endorsed Proposition 14, saying it would reduce “partisan bickering.” ... Ballot access obstacles are not enough for the monetized minds of corporations. Better, they say, to abolish election day altogether for minor parties and independent candidates. What’s next for the corporate supremacists, who misled and lied to the people to get their vote for Prop 14? When will the people awake and repeal it? — Ralph Nader on California Proposition 14
“I don’t think it’s right for anyone to tell my little child that it’s okay for brother to wear 10,000 dresses”
April 22, 2010We were honored to learn that Marcus Ewert and Rex Ray's illustrated children's book, 10,000 Dresses, was recently recommended by the organization Alameda C.A.R.E. — or "Community Alliance Resource for Education," a group which provides support and legal advocacy for LGBT children in the Alameda school district — for inclusion in the anti-bullying curriculum required for all K-5 students in Alameda schools. And we are further honored, in a queasier sort of way, to learn that the Pacific Justice Institute — which, in Ed Meese's estimation, "fills a critical need on the West Coast for those whose civil liberties are threatened" — has decided that Ewert and Ray's work is harmful those same K-5 students that C.A.R.E. wants to protect, and apparently many people in the Alameda community have decided to agree.
