I never thought I'd give money to Mormons...


...well, it's actually students and faculty who attend a Mormon University, so they aren't necessarily LDS themselves, but probably a large number of them are. At least the one in the photo below is...anyway, why would the author of Internal Monologue throw a few dollars to a bunch of people who attend Brigham Young University? Because they are trying to avoid having to listen to Dick Cheney at their commencement, that's why. And what nobler cause could there be than that? (OK, maybe impeaching him would be nobler, or dedicating your life to serving the poor. But avoiding Dick Cheney at your commencement ranks pretty high on my scale of nobility.)

So if you want to show these brave folks some love, you can PayPal them a few bucks. They're trying to set up an Alternative Commencement with Ralph Nader, Pete Ashdown, and Jack Healey as speakers. They'd been having trouble booking a space, as apparently they were blacklisted by the University and many local venues wouldn't deal with them. But it looks like they've got a space now, so I hope all goes well Thursday when the event is scheduled to take place.

Ralph Nader? The man who gave us George Bush? Was OJ busy that weekend?

Yeah, I don't really think Nader was a good choice, but they were scrambling for people at the last minute. So I'm willing to cut them some slack on that.
