Presidents Day

Here is a marvelous, depression-lifting, campaign to join.

There is a nationwide effort in the US to "celebrate" Presidents Day, 
February 19 (previously honoring birthdays of Geo. Washington and 
Abraham Lincoln) by sending a message to the current resident of the 
White House. Just make a donation, however small, to a pro choice 
organization, and have a card sent to Bush saying: "'President' Bush, 
a donation has been made in your name to Planned Parenthood (or other 
organization of your choice)."  You can do it by snail-mail, or with 
a click and a credit card at www.plannedparenthood.org or 

Let the majority be heard! Don't mourn, organize!

On a similar note, for those of you needing a new palindrome for 
teaching about restriction endonucleases:   Dubya won? No way, bud!

(Whose Univ. pays me to think and teach, but does not necessarily 
endorse everything I think or say.)
