So the march is on. Fifteen years after Granny D started her march across the United States in the name of “campaign finance reform,” we will begin our march across New Hampshire (the long way), in the name of “corruption reform.”
We’ve launched the #NHRebellion website. Check out the route, and think about what you can do. We need people to walk — 185 miles, in January, but we guarantee free coffee. Even if you can’t afford the 2 weeks it will take, you can sign up for any part. And best of all: Once you sign up, they give you this really cool URL so people can pledge to support you, which means supports the #NHRebellion, which means supports the next step to fixing this mess. Here’s my sponsorship link: bit.ly/SponsorLessig. here’s my “please sponsor me” request.
Thanks to the Americans Who Tell The Truth project for permitting us to use the beautiful image of Granny D. And please do what you can to help spread the word.
they are the most best humans to ever get tossed
in the cauldron
the long ladle of the tall witch
stirring and stirring
scraping it off the bottom
a handful of magic here
a pinch of the miraculous here
in the concrete world of right angles
the humans of new york
dream and chase the dream
they are the carrot
and they are the stick
and they are spell bound for heights
they are here
because they have flavor
and they are being moved by magic no one sees
but every one knows
each and all of them
are a distinct flavor
in how beautiful it is to be
in the human universe
of new york magic
“This guy reading the newspaper on the subway is Keanu Reeves.
He is from a problematic family. His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a stripper. His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads.
He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby. Since then Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids.
He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. He said: ‘I live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?’
One of his best friends died by overdose, he was River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s brother). Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again.
His younger sister had leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 70% of his gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.
In one of his birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer some of the cake.
He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy clothes.
When they asked him about ‘Sad Keanu’, he replied: ‘You need to be happy to live, I don’t.’”
