June 2005 Notebook Entries
Notebook entry, June 25, 2005
No one from State Senator Keller's office, or her associate, named shiela, as I have mentioned in my June 11th entry. I will assume that this person Shiela, does not want any outside "help" from people that she does not know. I have not called back the Senator's office, and will just brush the dirt from my shoes and move on.

This is a few days late, but the event is worth the tale. On February 7th, 2005 the Senate penned Resolution 39 -- a formal apology to the victims of lynching and the descendants of those victims for the failure of the Senate to enact anti-lynching legislation.
It finally passed this week and the movement was led by a woman -- Senator Landrieu.
It is my fondest dream and hope, that at the very least, that I had a small part. My essays have been up for several years now, and I seem to think (in my delusional state) that they were pretty darn good.
You can read: The American and German Holocausts: Common Behavioral Thread as seen from the evolutionary perspective and: Reparations Anyone? The Denver Post op/ed Sept. 18, p.8b, A Reply.

The town hall meeting went well last night, and Representative Green, HD23, said that my request for an hour of her time to go over the "re-inventing" of the Democratic Party would be fine. Call her in July. Done.
As a bonus, Senator Moe Keller, of HD 22, was there. My wife, Diana, has been a friend of the Senator long before she even ran for the Colorado House. She read the advertisement suggestions that I mailed to her (see, I am writing, but you just can't read the work) and asked if I wanted to work with an bi-partisan committee to put their message on the air in support of Referendum C that will be on the ballot this November. I said yes. She will pass my cell number on to someone named Shelia.

I suppose by now that if you are a regular viewer of this web site, you have noticed a considerable lack of entries. Not only here on my Notebook Entries section, but in other areas as well. That is because I am working behind the scenes on the next stage of my independent scholarly adventure. I am still writing, but all of it is not suitable for presentation here on the web site. I am attempting to put into practical usages my knowledge of evolutionary psychology, politics, and film making into reality. The film-making is taking a back seat to other practicalities, such as putting pen to paper and sending letters to local politicians.
Tonight, I will attend a fund raiser for a local Representative of the Colorado legislature, Gwyn Green of HD23.. I have meet her on one other occasion and we seem to get along quite well. She is a Liberal from the "Get-Go," and I strongly believe that she can help me develop a practical solution to the "re-inventing" of the Democratic Party that I have been working on in the background.
