Forsberg to run against Kerry (english)
22 Oct 2002
Modified: 26 Oct 2002
Forsberg protests Kerry's vote on war resolution by running as a write-in candidate
Kerry is running against no-one (except Libertarian Michael Cloud). The Republican challenger, Anthony Kandell, failed to get enough signatures to get on the ballot.

Forsberg's write-in candidacy provides an option t vote your displeasure against Kerry's decision, without risking a Republican victory.

typo in flyer fixed but... (english)

I don't know about broken glass being unable to be completly removed from carpeting but it does remind me about looking for typos! I thought I had them all but I had and extra "s" in Mass. (Masss... (not the part I usualy mistype).

I fixed it at http://lynx.dac.neu.edu/j/jzappia/mainstream-awareness.html but it won't take affect till the page leaves memory cache.

Might as well add this: I know that Jill Stein (www.jillwill.org redirection from www.jillforgov.org)has utilized independent media (http://freemanz.com/political/) and has made comments about making [corporate] media responsible to public airwaves, been on No Censorship Radio, Radio with a View (if memory...) etc. but if a goal is getting on the corporate airwaves without strengthening existing independent media or waiting for corporate newspaper to 'have time to time fir them in', and most importantly raising the awareness that it exists then....(have to run... )

Of yea, rememeber Freemanz, arrested and crhared with wiretapping, while doing his activist reporting, visit his site above.
an arboreal write-in candidate (english)

Someone is also running a bonsai tree ("the Peace Tree") against Kerry. Now, you gotta decide who you think would make a better Senator--a progressive who's still a member of the Democratic Party or a tree running as an independent. The tree seems to be exercising better political sense, but I don't know if they even allow trees to join political parties.

I also heard a rumor about getting Howard Zinn to be a write-in. Anyone else heard this circulating?
