From Stephanie:
New Yorkers, in addition to the request below, join the phone banks at PFAW this week and next. Call Tony Simone at 212 420 0440 and tell him you can come in with your cell phone to call people to lobby their reps against Alito.
Thanks!

Current thinking and analysis seems to bring us to the following WRT Judge Alito. He’s a weasel, and worse than that, he’s a non-responsive weasel. Anyone at all who has listened to the hearings (including Schumer’s masterful attempts to get him to give a straight answer on anything) cannot conclude otherwise.

Further, that for the moment, unless a lot more Americans get off their butt and call or write their Senators, he’s getting that seat on the Court. This might be expected to have an adverse impact on women’s rights, including abortion, privacy, and the Imperial Presidency, along with the environment, promotion of big business, and strip searching ten year old girls. But Americans cannot or will not connect the dots and do something about it, or try to.

Here is the Judiciary Committee, you know who your senators are, go to it.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
