Americablog to Maine!

and for a great cause:

I am heading to Maine this afternoon with "Joe in DC," who is from there. Tomorrow, I'm speaking at a fundraiser for Maine Won't Discriminate, hosted by Joe's sisters and friends. Then back in DC on Monday.

For those of you who may not be aware, Maine passed a law this year banning discrimination based on sexual orientation. The far right is trying to repeal the law through a referendum. In their world, it's okay to fire someone for being gay... or to deny housing to a lesbian... or to refuse service to a same-gender couple.

We're still on our Great Western Grandchildren Odyssey but I'd be there in a heartbeat otherwise. Please consider showing up on Sunday afteroon in Portland, Munjoy Hill - details at Maine Won't Discriminate, and consider giving them a donation while you're at it. Thanks.
