Like a lot of people, since certain recent events--and more stacking up every damn day, like that idiocy with textbooks in Wiconsin and Texas, which makes me froth like rabies milkshake--I have wanted to DO SOMETHING. Problem is that I'm never sure exactly what to do. Donating money/time is the standard, of course, (and now that the taxes are paid off, I'm getting back onto the charity junket, even if it's just a few bucks a month) but what I'd like to do is use my skills, such as they are, for my causes, such as they are.
Once upon a time, in this very space, I debated whether I SHOULD do something politically motivated...these days, that one's gone by the wayside, and now the question is HOW should I do it?
