Start of Summer Update

I have neglected my blog for too long. Work at the LoC is going well, although not very exciting. I did pass the criminal background check during the last month, and they know all about my past arrests and convictions. Here is a pic of a lotus at Lake Artemesia where I walk Bruno nearly every day.



My current activism remains almost exclusively focused on courageous whistle blower, Bradley Manning (now moved from Quantico to more humane Leavenworth). The prosecution and persecution of Bradley and other whistle blowers reveals the repressive nature of Barack Obama’s presidency. Although he claimed “hope” and even pushed “government transparency” during his campaign, the reality of his time as president has proven to be the opposite.

We (the Bradley Manning Support Network) had a tele-press conference for Bradley (exactly one year after his arrest) recently which featured Pentagon Papers’ Daniel Ellsberg and WikiLeak’s Julian Assange. It proved to be wildly successful. Here are a couple news stories that emerged from it:

MSNBC

Economic Times

I promise to write more very soon. This week will be Ray’s birthday! He’s a wonderful guy who is now in my life. And on Monday announcements will be made about a very important action taking place in downtown DC in October…

So, I promise, more very soon. Right now I’m dealing with a severe toothache that the dentist will help take care of Monday morning. Bruno is doing well, but kind of detests the heat and humidity.
