Link to "Whose Team is it, Anyway?"

In addition to my own work, I sometimes post on this blog articles that I think are worth keeping the link to and re-reading from time to time. One such article is "Whose Team is it, Anyway?" by Katha Pollitt, originally published in The Nation. It's a very interesting editorial about how some Democrats in Congress are trying to use healthcare reform to restrict women's access to safe and legal abortion: http://www.thenation.com/doc/20091130/pollitt

Peter Mathews, Congressional Candidate

Taking a look back at some of my published work earlier this year, my interview with Peter Mathews was featured in the Blade February 2010 issue. He's a Democrat challenging the incumbent Laura Richardson in California's 37th Congressional District. The story talks about how he's campaigning on various LGBT issues as well as progressive matters in general. Here's the link: http://www.gayblade.com/news0210_mathews.shtml
