I wish people would remember that, in the U.S., it's innocent until proven guilty.

If you have a Paid Account, LJ can give you three days of additional paid time... but you have to ask for it, as it is not automatic. Check out this post for more info.

A big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] outoftime and [livejournal.com profile] marcal_92 for letting me know about it. :)

I am so proud to be an American -- and happy to be alive -- right now. I can't even put it into words.

Also, John McCain's concession speech was terrific. Classy and sincere... reminded me why I once respected/liked him so much.

Judy Blume explains why she supports Barack Obama.

An excerpt:

I remember the night Roosevelt died in April, 1945. I was seven years old and just recovering from chicken pox. When my parents heard the news on the radio, they fell into each other's arms, crying. I cried, too, although I didn't have a clue.

My generation wept the same way when we lost John Kennedy. Then Martin Luther King. Then Bobby Kennedy. We mourned what might have been. In the dark days that followed, those of us who were young and idealistic were forced to grow up fast. I watched the Vietnam war unfold on TV as I played on the floor with my two small children. I became a skeptic about politics and politicians. Yet there was never an election when I didn’t vote. For me, voting was both obligation and privilege.

I’ve never spoken publicly about my politics. But I’m speaking out now because at last we have a candidate who makes me believe again. A candidate who I see as America’s best hope, a candidate who inspires not just my grandson’s generation, but my own, and my children’s.

Whoever is elected in November is going to face a daunting challenge. No one person can clean up the mess it took 7 and ½ years to create. That's why I want the calm, thoughtful candidate I believe will surround himself with the best and the brightest. I believe the decisions Obama makes will be made based on what’s best for this country.

Say what you want about him... I thought this story (or this story, if you can read Norwegian) was so sweet.

I don't think that simply being a good person makes someone qualified to be president. I do, however, think it's wonderful when someone I consider otherwise qualified to be president is also a truly good person.

Random act of kindness. )

I've been busy, but not too busy to read this fascinating article about John McCain in Rolling Stone. Some of it I already knew, some of it honestly surprised me.

If you're a die-hard McCain supporter without an open mind, I doubt it'll do anything but make you angry. Otherwise, I think it's definitely worth reading.

How cool is it when actresses I like hold rallies related to candidates I like?

Ellen Pompeo & Danielle Panabaker speak in support of Barack Obama and registering to vote.

I got this from [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette...

My friend Stacie [livejournal.com profile] truelovepooh was diagnosed with both stage 2 ovarian and breast cancer on March 26, 2007. Because she was diagnosed while she was still in the 90 day probationary period at her new job, and her husband is an independent truck driver, she ended up completely without health insurance, like so many other Americans in this day and age. Now the hospital is turning her down for treatment because she can't afford it.

Some of her friends have come together to create a fundraiser to help raise money. It's called Fanfic On Demand. It reminds me a lot of Sweet Charity. Authors in all fandoms are invited to sign up to write a fic (the word counts can vary from 2,500 to 20,000+), specifying what fandoms they will write in and what they won't write, and then they are bid on. The highest bidder gets to deliever a fic challenge to the author they have 'won'. The author is then given 30 days after payment is recieved to complete the fic.

I have a LOT of excellent writers on my flist and seeing as this is for all fandoms, I'm trying to get a few people at the very least interested in this.

So if you are at all interested in signing up, I've made the form available for download here. If you decide to do this please send the form to supportstacie@gmail.com.

Also I would be eternally grateful if you pimp this in your own journals or anywhere you can. This is a cause that is really important to me, as I would pretty much do anything for this woman.

Thank you for your time, if you managed to read all the way through this.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] polvodestrella!

May the next year be the most exciting yet. :)

I adore Daniel and Amber. Like, a lot. As much as I don't care about a lot on Y&R these days, I am so thankful for any and all Danber scenes.
