Free Pussy Riot!

Much has been written about what’s happening to these women. If you haven’t been following it, the Coles notes version is that a group of women, unhappy with Putin, sang a ‘Punk Prayer’ in a Russian cathedral as a peaceful protest. They’ve now been in jail, denied access to their families and children, since March. They’ll be sentenced next week, likely for at least several years. If you can contribute or help them in any way, please do. There’s this band that I know who’s helping, too.


Firsts

Lots of firsts this summer for me. And I thought it appropriate that my first post on my blog be my first appearance on Sun News yesterday afternoon. For all the negative hype surrounding this network, I have to say, they were very welcoming. Perhaps they’ll have me back. If they do, next time, I’m taking off my heels.
