Ride the bus the PA for Obama!

New York may not be a "swing state" in the 2008 presidential election, but
that doesn't mean our community can't have an impact in this historic race.
In the coming weeks I'll be leading bus trips from Upper Manhattan to
Pennsylvania so that local residents can volunteer with the Obama-Biden
campaign in this key battleground state.

We will be registering voters and canvassing in West Philadelphia. The
trips, co-sponsored by the Audubon Reform Democratic Club, will be held on
the following dates:

Saturday, Sept. 27th
Departing at 7:00 a.m. from 145th St. & Convent Ave.

Sunday, Oct. 12th
Departing at 7:00 a.m. from: 179th St & Ft. Washington Ave.

We'll be returning by around 7:30 p.m. on both dates.

Cost: $30, to help pay for bus rental. (Accommodations will be made for
anyone unable to pay the full cost).

SPACE IS LIMITED. To RSVP and for more information, contact Laura Kavanagh:
laura (at) You can mail checks in advance, made out to "Audubon Reform Democratic Club", to Mark Levine 255 Cabrini Blvd., 1J, NY, NY 10040.

Spread the word!

This isn't topic-related, but ever since I moved to Washington Heights (191st stop on the 1-train) I have noticed the VAST amount of trash left behind on streets by EVERYONE including children on a daily basis. Often, my morning walk to the subway consists of hiking over blowing trash and soupy (unknown) liquids. It makes for a stinky situation (literally and metaphorically) for everyone. It is toxic, unfriendly, unwelcoming. I love the area, and my home, but the trash makes it feel very uninviting.

How can we beautify this area? Educating through marketing? Ticketing offenders?????? It kills me to see children using the city as a trashcan. I keep telling myself it will get better as winter comes, but I have serious doubts.

I feel like I'm in another time with the amount of trash on the streets. Please help! This city and Earth needs us!
