What to do? What to do?

Two pretty darned cool events on Friday and another to-do that you can toss in on the way to either – and if your young and full of energy, you could probably do all!

The Missoula Urban Demonstration Project (MUD) is hosting its annual Garden Party, titled “Getting Back to its Roots”. Tickets are $15/35 for non-members and families (what a deal!). Starts at 5 p.m. with seriously discounted wine and Big Sky and New Belgium brews, then dinner will be served at 7 p.m. Live music from Broken Valley Road Show and entertainment by Improvisto. A silent auction. Check out their website for more information.

Good to see the MUD website back up and running!

At 7 p.m., head over to the Wilma for the Big Sky Film Series independent film documentary Secrecy. It’s described as “An engaging, stylistic film about the vast, invisible world of government secrecy, which focuses on classified secrets, and the government’s ability to put information out of sight if it would harm national security. SECRECY explores the tensions between our safety as a nation, and our ability to function as a democracy.” This one is free.

And before you start it all, consider taking 5 minutes and stopping by the office of the Jeanette Rankin Peace Center and volunteering for the JRPC’s annual Peace Party (which is next Sunday, September 14th) at Caras Park). Volunteers will get free entrance to the party and dinner for only $5.50.

You can help them out, too, by buying your tickets to the event and the raffle. Call 543-3955 for more information.

All within what? A 10 minute bike ride, at the most?

From Time’s Joe Klein:

There is a tendency in the media to kick ourselves, cringe and withdraw, when we are criticized. But I hope my colleagues stand strong in this case: it is important for the public to know that Palin raised taxes as governor, supported the Bridge to Nowhere before she opposed it, pursued pork-barrel projects as mayor, tried to ban books at the local library and thinks the war in Iraq is “a task from God.” The attempts by the McCain campaign to bully us into not reporting such things are not only stupidly aggressive, but unprofessional in the extreme.
