Voting Progressive Yet Still Oppressing: A discussion on the work that needs to be done.
"So pot is legal, but some mothers can not get driver cards to take their kids to school?"

In a recent blog Adam Phillips wrote "Our version of progressivism is truly weird: many of us in favor of left-leaning consumerism but forgetting that a truly progressive vision includes everyone in the fight for the common good." Libertarian or libertine might be a more appropriate label to put on Oregon.

Since that time the states of Washington and Vermont have enacted similiar legislation.
Last spring doctors told Brittany Maynard, 29, that she had six months to live after she was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma. She moved to Oregon and shared with the public her decision to end her life.  Ms. Maynard's openess about her condition and decision to end her life reignited public and private conversations about the right to die.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
