The Jeannette Rankin Peace Center is heading up the task of replacing the famous Waterworks Hill peace sign, which disappeared last week. They’re also looking for any spare white sheets or towels that you have to help rebuild it.

The event starts at 4 p.m. You can find the trailhead on Duncan Drive, just past Greenough Park – and walk up the hill and take the first left past the water plant – then keep walking. If you have any questions, just give the JRPC a call.

JRPC is also helping sponsor a RALLY IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF IRAN (who are fighting right now for their votes to be counted in the recent presidential election). This event, too, is tomorrow (Tuesday) in Caras Park, at noon. Call your bagged lunch order in early to Doc’s Sandwich Shop (542-7414‎) and head on down to the park for music (including Amy Martin), Persian poetry, and information provided from an Iranian-American law student, an Iranian-American professor (Dr. Mehrdad Kia), and an American recently returned from Iran.

Senator Pat Williams will also speak.

Shocking news. Is it true? I’m not sure, but it came from a reliable source (my imagination). Here’s why I wrote that headline:

… Palin attorney Thomas Van Flein on Saturday warned legal action may be taken against bloggers and publications that reprint what he calls fraudulent claims. (From an Associated Press story; emphasis mine.)

So come and get me Mr. Van Flein. Let’s test some libel laws. I mean, Gov. Palin has been the butt of jokes since the summer of ’08, when it was announced she would be Sen. John McCain’s running mate. Think Leno, Letterman, SNL, YouTube …

So now she bails on the people of Alaska, because, as she says on her Facebook and Twitter entries, she has a “higher calling.” And what could be a higher calling than carrying the senator’s child to term?

By the way, there’s an extensive article on Palin in Vanity Fair that’s worth the read. (Tip o’ the hat to my buddy Andy in Anchorage. Whoops, I see jhwygirl already linked to it in the comments in her post below, courtesy klemz. Great minds … )
