A few announcements

My mailbox has been humming with items of interest lately, so I'm going to list a few of them here:

- Peter Brown, candidate for Houston City Council At Large Position 1 is having a Summer Celebration at Blanco's (3406 W. Alabama) on July 18 starting at 6:30 PM, featuring the music of Sammy Relford and the Friends Band. There's a link on Peter's site to a printable invitation for this, but as I blog this it's currently 404'd. Check back later, I'm sure it'll get fixed. (UPDATE: Fixed now, so click away.)

- Former State Rep Glen Maxey will lead the fight against the Double Secret Illegal anti-gay marriage amendment this fall. The Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby has a press release with the details. Though I feel sadly certain that this is a losing cause, it's nonetheless one that's absolutely worth fighting for.

- I almost surely can't make it to the DNC's annual Hispanic Leadership Summit, which will be held in San Antonio from August 5th through the 7th at the Hyatt Riverwalk Hotel, but that doesn't mean you can't go. Andrew D has more on what sounds like a fun event.

Further updates as events warrant. Let me know if you have any questions.

When life give you lemons, you make lemonade. The folks who proposed this amendment wanted to use it as an organizing tool for their political purposes. Well, I have news for them. We're going to take the issue headon and win this thing. But however it comes out, there will be on the ground results for our side that will stagger us all. This is not a four month battle, it's a war. We're in it for the long haul.
