Well, I'm irritated as hell, having tried repeatedly--and I mean repeatedly--to publish the following links all pretty and neatly hidden behind the word "here," but blogger has refused to allow me to do it that way. It's taken me hours to remember, of course, that I can just publish it looking all crazy. Guess that's my OCD kicking in. Anyway, here are some links I recommend checking out. The post may not be tidy, but it'll get the job done.
Jay has an excellent rant on what African-American workers and undocumented Latino workers have in common here.
The Piscean Princess gets off writing about how she is not her hair here.
Skyscraper electrified me with her poem about how she is a walking mini-revolution here.
And Glenda very creatively reminds us to get real, stay real, and celebrate the truth regardless and maybe especially because of what's going on around us here.
