for The Old Mole 9 June 2008

But of course it’s not just Oklahoma.

Time to come out of hibernation!

First of all I want to thank all the volunteers who helped with the Amy Goodman/David Goodman benefit we did last month. It was a great success and we raised about $16,000. Upcoming benefits include the Pink Martini Fundfest in June at the Crystal Ballroom with KBOO as one of the 4 non-profit beneficiaries. Big thanks to Pink Martini for choosing KBOO this year! And don't forget, the monthly KBOO Reggae Benefit happens May 24 at the Blue Monk and features Nuborn Tribe w/ Ital Vibes.

mother's day for peace

Yesterday was Mother’s Day, and by some counts it was the one-hundredth anniversary of Mother’s Day in the US . In 1870, social activist Julia Ward Howe wrote her Mother's Day Proclamation as a call for peace and disarmament, a call to unite women to organize against war.
