A few random things…
If you’re going to be doing any Christmas shopping at Amazon.com, use the link at the left to get there, and I’ll get a few cents from whatever you buy on that visit. It won’t cost you any more. Also, check out the DWR Amazon Store linked at left, for some great ideas of books, DVDs and other items to give to someone you’d like to educate about drug policy reform (there are also a number of items just for fun).
An off-topic call for help. I have worked with a great group of students at Illinois State University called the Improv Mafia. Over the years, these guys, on their own without a coach, have put together some of the best and most original improv comedy I’ve ever seen. I’ve done some piano playing for them and it’s a blast!
They competed in this year’s College Improv Tournament and did a great job in the Midwest Regional despite losing one of their six performers to food poisoning just before the final round. They came in second by 1.5 points. They still have a chance to compete in the National Tournament â€” all 6 regional 2nd place finishers compete through online voting for the wild card slot.
Here’s where you come in. Go and vote. Be sure to select The Improv Mafia (Illinois State University). You have to use a valid email address and verify it. Thanks!
There have been some great, involved discussions in comments recently. Be sure to check those out when you have a chance. Thanks to all the regulars who keep this place so exciting, and add additional perspectives to my own.
